Motorola's Moto X has been garnering a lot of media attention ever since reports leaked that the company would allow consumers to choose a colour of their choice and also place personalized engraving on the phone's back panel. Now, a new report has hit the internet that the customisable back panels would be made from plastic, metal, wood, ceramic and even a fabric-based material.

Taylor Wimberly, founder of technology website 'Android and ME', claimed that Motorola's flagship phone Moto X will sold initially with plastic and wood cover plate options and other variants with metal, ceramic and fabrics covers will be rolled out soon after the 23 August launch.

Apart from attractive customisation options, the upcoming phone is said to feature a smart app to launch the camera with just a flick and an advanced voice-command application.

The most striking feature is that the Moto X will have an intelligence of its own to become self aware. For instance, if the phone in a moving car rings it automatically launches the speaker phone mode on call.

Moto X is expected to sport a HD 720p display and run on Android v4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor with 2GB RAM.

It is to be noted that the Moto X will be the first major phone device to roll out of the American technology major, since the company was acquired by Google in a multi-billion dollar deal in 2012. Moto X is also pegged to be the first ever smartphone to be designed, engineered and manufactured on American soil. Moto X units will be assembled at Motorola's 500,000 square-foot factory plant in Fort Worth, Texas.
