List of Moto X+1 custom back covers leaked, includes new leather colors


Teak Motorola Moto X

While you were enjoying your Sunday BBQ, the man that is @evleaks was busy hand delivering his usual leaks onto the net. His latest? More (alleged) details on the rumored Motorola Moto X+1, the upcoming Motorola Moto X sequel we told you guys about a few weeks ago. This time around, it looks like Motorola might introduce new materials for customers to choose when customizing a smartphone on their site.


Mr. Leaks provided a list of the available back covers to be found and while the usual colors made a return (along with wood), you’ll notice the addition of new leather options as well. We’re guessing these will look similar to back covers Samsung has been crazy about as of late (aka S Leather), although given Motorola’s history of using authentic wood back covers, these leather backs could feature real animal hide. Because… save the rainforests and all that.

As we approach the summer time (when the Moto X+1 is said to makes its official debut) we couldn’t be more excited. Many Android “spec whores fans” scoffed at the Moto X’s focus on software features over the higher end specs found on rival OEMs’ devices. With leather making the line up, we can’t help but wonder if Motorola will eventually introduce new materials to keep things fresh. Aluminum perhaps? Glass (please, no). What would you guys like to see on a Moto X+1?

  1. I wasn’t sure who posted this article, but when I saw the “please no” by glass, I knew it was Chris #Nexus4

      1. Just curious, do you still have it?

  2. I want it clear so I can see the innards

    1. So much glue and heat shielding you are going to see

      1. Unless,well, you know…its clear…so I can see the innards…which is what I said I want(reading isn’t as hard as you make it out to be, just be friends with the letters)

        1. Have you seen an ifixit teardown of a phone lately? The innards are covered in heat shielding and glue, it would be hideous looking. Only the case would be clear, not everything else. Best case you’d just see a big black battery. The only pretty innard is going to be the mobo and other chips that are buried deep.

  3. Moto X is the best user experience of any phone I have had. It may not appear to have top end specs; but it is as fast as my S4 on everyday tasks. In fact the S4 occasionally lags; Ive yet to have lag problems withe the motox. Samsung products tend to get in the way of themselves where as the motox gets out of your way and just works well.

    The camera was the weak point, but the SW upgrades they have done to it have made it much better. Still not the best; but very usable now., Very much looking fwd to the Moto X+1

    Leather sounds awesome.

  4. 5 inch to 5.2 inch screen.

    1. not everyone has a purse to carry their overgrown phone.

    2. nooooo!, keep same size but 2k or at least 1080p resolution with 441ppi and micro sdcard slot please!

  5. I would love an a metal ‘skeleton’ with a leather back. They could offer a PVD coating (makes it black matte) on the metal as another option.
