Motorola announced the Moto Maker program alongside the original Moto X back in 2013, though the company has yet to expand the customization program to devices other than the Moto X and Moto 360. There’s a possibility that may all change sometime soon, if a recent leak from a familiar source proves true.
According to retired leaker @evleaks, the Moto G (3rd Gen.) will come with Moto Maker support. This means users will likely be able to choose different colored back panels, front panels as well as accent colors for the metallic camera module on the phone’s back side. Take a look at the image below to see just how this customization may work:
Since the Moto G is a budget-friendly smartphone, customers probably won’t be able to choose different build materials like on the Moto X. However if this leak proves true, this will be a big step up over the Moto G (2014), which comes with a few different colored back plates that users can swap out at will. With the Moto X, Moto Maker allows users to choose different storage options as well, though at this time we’re not sure if the company will allow for that level of customization with the upcoming device.
I know I’m excited for this new handset given all of the recent leaks, but what do you think? Are you looking forward to customizing your new Moto G?
