Default A-5 Finish

I was checking out the new A-5 on the browning website today, and I noticed something weird about the finish. The site calls it a Black Anodized Bi-Tone Finish. What does that mean? Why not just a blued finish? Is this better than a blued finish.

The receiver is aluminum. You cannot "blue" aluminum. Anodizing is the most common finish for aluminum. "Bi-tone"? I cannot tell from the pic, but apparently it is two toned somehow. Perhaps the top is matte and the sides are bright?

I think the barrel is blued. That makes sense though for the receiver. Thanks for the reply.
