Don’t give up on the wood-backed Motorola Moto X yet

Motorola’s Moto X has been out with its diverse customization options for quite some time now, but its promised wooden backs are yet to arrive on the scene. Following a number of assurances from the company saying that they will be made available ‘soon,’ it seems that the wooden back covers are finally ready to come out this holiday season.

Noted leakster @EvLeaks has let out an image showcasing two wood-backed Moto X models bearing the Verizon logo, confirming that at least the said carrier will indeed be offering this option. There is also a possibility of Verizon getting exclusivity on the deal, but it’s unlikely given the public ire which Motorola would have to face if it takes such a decision.

The Motorola Moto X was launched by the American company back in August this year, and since then, it has made its way to all major US carriers, albeit without the wooden back covers. Interested buyers can buy it, and customized the colors on a number of its body parts using the Moto Maker client.

The device features a 4.7-inch 1280 x 720 pixel AMOLED screen bearing a pixel density of 316ppi. One of its other highlights is its 10.5MP main camera. This Android-based handset runs on a 1.7GHz dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor which is provided assistance by 2GB worth of RAM. The Moto X can be bought now in 16GB and 32GB options. A 2200mAh battery occupies space inside it.

We’re still not sure as to when the Motorola Moto X will get its wooden back covers, but we’ll have more information on the matter when additional details are out.
