Motorola’s next flagship phone, long known as the X phone, has had some ridiculous rumors tied to it. The most ridiculous of them was the possibility of being able to customize the hardware inside your device when ordering them as you would a computer, being able to get the combination of RAM, processor, display resolution and memory you wanted. While a modular phone like that isn’t as likely, today’s rumor might be as believable as any of them.

According to a source of PhoneArena‘s, Motorola will build the X Phone with over 20 different color options to choose from. That’s a massive number considering most OEMs don’t typically exceed 5 or 6 options, let alone 10 and 15.

It’s tough to say how Motorola will handle such a broad spectrum of colors. It could either say something about how the phone will be built (it may have a design that allows modular customization of the chassis) or Motorola’s production process (they might mass produce the most popular colors and only build certain colors on special order).

Either way, it’ll be interesting to see if this rumor holds up and to see just how Motorola plans to accomplish the feat whenever it decides to officially unveil the phone. Which color would you go with?
