'Moto X+1' back panel options rumored, including wood and leather

The Moto X's customizability through the Moto Maker site is an important differentiator for Motorola, and if the latest rumor from Twitter leaker @evleaks is to be believed, the apparent successor to that phone, dubbed "Moto X+1" could take things a step further with new backplates, including leather and wood options.

The 25 back panel varieties listed in today's leak include —

  • Cool: Navy, Turquoise, Olive, Royal Blue, Dark Teal
  • Neutral: Slate, Purple, Smoke, Black, Chalk
  • Warm: Red, Orange, Lemon Lime, Violet, Crimson, Raspberry, Cabernet
  • Wood: Teak, Bamboo, Rosewood, Ebony
  • Leather: Black, Red, Grey, Blue

Motorola has said a successor to the Moto X is on the way this summer, but so far little is known about the device besides the rumored "Moto X+1" monicker.

If today's list turns out to be accurate, the new leather-backed options are sure to attract attention, as this kind of finish has so far been the purview of exclusive smartphone brands like Vertu.

So would you buy a leather-backed, second-gen Moto X? Shout out in the comments!
