Moto X Will Allow Color Customization, Runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean

We recently speculated exactly what Motorola meant when it said that the Moto X will be customizable in a new advertisement. Could it mean that we’ll be able to choose the display size, amount of RAM, storage options and the processor? Could we change the shape and size of the phone, as far fetched as that sounds? Or will it only allow for smaller tweaks? It turns out it’s the latter, according to a report fromĀ ABC News on Thursday.

The news outlet learned that Motorola will allow consumers to choose the color for the phone’s trim and for the back of the device, presumably the battery cover. We assume we’ll be able to choose the front plate, too, though it’s possible that’s part of the side trim. While it’s easy as pie to set a custom wallpaper on any Android smartphone – or any smartphone for that matter – Motorola will apparently allow consumers to upload a personal image that will exist as the phone’s wallpaper out of the box. Customers can apparently opt to engrave the phone, too, though again that’s not hard to do if you live near any sort of engraving company. The device will also reportedly run the newest Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system.

This doesn’t sound too exciting, and we still hope Motorola enables more granular control over some of the specs. After all, consumers can already opt to create custom cases in nearly every design imaginable, so what’s the big deal?
