Motorola drops walnut wooden back option for Moto X, adds rosewood instead

Motorola has carried out some changes to its Moto Maker online tool where it has dropped the walnut option from the wooden back options. On the upside, the company has added an all-new customizable finish to the mix, rosewood, which is now available for the same $25 surplus charge.

Just so you know, the rosewood finish was one of the options shown off last year when the smartphone went official. There’s no apparent reason behind the long delay and the company is yet to disclose the purpose behind discontinuing the walnut option which may not come back again, suggests Droid-life. If you’re looking to purchase the Moto X with or without the new finish, you might want to wait a bit longer.

Motorola is confirmed to be working on a 64GB model of the smartphone which will go on sale in the US unlocked and through Sprint. The phone will also be customizable and have a price tag of $449.99. Additionally, the company plans to launch its upcoming flagship Moto X+1 sometime this summer. The phone is rumored to have high-end specs and an improved design along with new premium finishes including leather.
