Evan Blass, better known on Twitter as evleaks, has reawakened to give us info regarding the upcoming Moto G (3rd Gen) from Motorola. According to Evan, the new Moto G will be customizable through Moto Maker, which is Motorola’s online custom shop for smartphones. Currently, only the Moto X (2nd Gen) and Moto 360 are customizable via the service, and if the Moto G does in fact hit Moto Maker, it would be the first mid-range (non flagship) smartphone you can customize.
Along with the info, Evan posted a photo of a few options you can expect to see when the device is available on Moto Maker. As we can see, there are plenty of backplate color options to choose from, but as of right now, it looks like plastic is your only option – no leather, no wood. You can also change the back strip piece that folks seem to be on the fence about, as well as the front color to Black or White.
Currently for the Moto X, you can also decide how much internal storage you would like, but for a mid-range phone, we don’t know yet if Motorola will offer that level of customization. We will have to wait and see what Motorola officially offers at time of announcement.
