Wooden Moto X phones are still coming, and Verizon has been confirmed as one of the carriers

moto x wooden verizon

When Motorola first announced the Moto X, the company showed us a bevy of different colors and styles that could be applied in the Moto Maker. One subset of styles included units that included real wood for the chassis. Unfortunately Motorola has been as slow to roll those out as they were in getting the base Moto Maker models out for carriers not named “AT&T.”

But there is some good news: the wooden backs are still coming. Twitter account @evleaks tipped us off to that much with the picture you see above. It’s not that we didn’t believe Motorola wouldn’t eventually bring them out as originally promised, but it’s nice to know that official renders are floating about (which could mean Motorola is close to putting them up for sale).

It’s worth noting that the phones in the photo are branded with Verizon Wireless logos, which is a good sign that this release won’t be marred by timed exclusivity like the Moto Maker originally was. Nothing else was shared in regards to the photo, but we suspect it won’t be long before we start hearing more about its arrival. Take a look above and let us know what you think!

    Looks like someone just copy and pasted the Verizon logo on those. The phones look real but not sure the Verizon logo is really on those

      I was hoping anything on the back would look branded/burned in.

      The logos did look out of place, but @evleaks is pretty reliable and wouldn’t post something if he wasn’t sure it was legit.

    Am I the only one who finds it odd that the cameras don’t look the same on both phones?

    • cns2007

      Looks like one is the silver accent color and the other is black, because the side buttons match.

      • NCSUgolfer01

        Not the accent, the actual camera inside that accent ring.

          Probably just the conditions the pictures we taken in. The one on the left looks like there might be some flash reflection that makes seeing the lens easier.

            The one on the right looks to be an artist’s rendering. Left looks to be an actual photo.

  • Michael O’Connell

    Is it actual wood or a laminate?

    • http://www.phandroid.com Quentyn Kennemer

      According to the original press release, these should be actual wood.

  • Kurt

    Is Verizon really going to mess up the beautiful wood with their damn logo? Never mind, I already know the answer to that.

  • AbbyZFresh

    Why is Verizon the easy target? You might as well tell AT&T and Sprint to remove their logos as well on the wooden backs.

    • StacyD

      Verizon did the name on the Home button of the Samsung Note2 and other Samsung devices. They have a history of TACKINESS!
