MotoMaker to Add Leather Back Option this Year According to Leak

When Motorola's Moto X launched last summer it did something that no other phone on the market could do; bring you hundreds of customizable options to make your phone truly unique from someone else's.  After the initial batch of colors Motorola started adding more exotic options for the back of your phone, for a premium of course.  These options included such things as bamboo and three wood finishes to give your phone that extra sophisticated look and feel.  Now it look as if Motorola is going to be adding a new exotic option for your enjoyment: leather.  While Samsung has been putting pleather on the backs of its phones since the Note 3 launched last September, Motorola will also be offering the option, although there's no telling if this is going to be pleather or actual real leather.

The clue was left by famed leaker @EVLeaks on Twitter and reads simply "2013:wood::2014:leather."  What's more interesting is that we've seen @EVLeaks post the name of the new Moto X device, the Moto X+1, just yesterday and now they've followed it up with this little juicy tidbit.  Whether or not leather will be restricted to just the new device or not is anybody's best guess, but we've seen plenty of hints that the original Moto X is going to be officially discontinued very soon, and that leaves room for only one possible option.  The Moto X was quite possibly the best phone of 2013 depending on what your priorities are, and it's very likely that the Moto X+1 could retain the crown of 2014 if Moto continues on the path of high quality meets innovation role that they showed off with the original device.  While there's no telling exactly what specs Motorola is going to put in the new Moto X+1, given that the chipset in the Moto X was a completely custom one, you can bet they're going to be competitive in performance and battery life.  What's more is that there's a phablet version of the X+1 being rumored now as well, meaning that you'll not only have choice of colors and materials to use on the new Moto X+1, but also be able to choose your size too. Small, medium and large?  Yes, please!
