Moto X+1 Moto Maker options to include leather and maybe more
Another day, another bit of exclusive news about Motorola's upcoming announcements. This time, the news we have is about Moto Maker, the customization options for Motorola's devices. We haven't heard much about the potential changes coming to Moto Maker, until now. Our source close to the situation is saying that there will be new materials available. 

As far as backing material options, there will be the plastic and wooden options that are already available in Moto Maker, but there will also be new materials. A leather backing (which has been rumored before) has been confirmed to be added to Moto Maker soon; and, Motorola has apparently also been testing a denim backing. The denim is not confirmed to be made available, but it would be denim over plastic if it does come to pass. 

Unfortunately, our source doesn't know of any new colors that will be added to the Moto Maker palette. We are hoping that is just our hitting the limit of our source's knowledge though (obviously they can't know everything). It would seem reasonable that Motorola would add colors, but we can't confirm anything right now.

Lenovo is doing nothing. They don't own Motorola yet.

Yes it is. It was added in the round two of colors, pretty long after the release of the Moto X.

I currently have a wooden backed Moto X and I will probably buy one of these with leather in a year or so. Plastic, glass, and metal are outdated for me.
