Earlier today, Motorola took to Google+ and dropped a tease about its wooden-backed Moto X. The company told customers to “Put this DIY project on hold” and it did so with good reason. A few hours after that tease made the rounds, the company added a new bamboo option to its Moto X maker design tool.
If you head to Moto Maker, you’ll see the lovely bamboo backing as an option in the “Natural” category. It’s an online exclusive so you’ll only be able to get it from Motorola via the Moto X tool. Just head to Moto Maker, select the bamboo option and pair it with the front color and accent color of your choice. It’ll cost you a $100 extra to outfit your phone with wood and you’ll have to wait longer for it, but it’ll be worth it, right?
Oh and if you have an questions about the Bamboo version, we’ve pasted Motorola’s FAQ about the custom phone below.
