Motorola’s upcoming Moto X+1 could have wood and leather backs.

According to photos sent by a tipster to AndroidPolice, the supposed Moto X+1 resembles the Moto X in shape and features layout, and also comes in a customizable wood back. As this is probably a MotoMaker phone, it has leather and plastic backs too.

A plastic Motorola logo is set into the wood back, while the camera above the logo has two LED flashes.

The sides of the phone could be made of aluminum, and the phone reportedly as a 5.1-inch screen. Controls are on the right side, and the headphone jack can be found at the top, along with the SIM card slot. The charging slot can be found at the bottom.

There is no way to verify that the phone that AndroidPolice shows is really the Moto X+1, or just a mock-up.

Recently, Motorola was awarded a trademark for the name Moto Maxx. Since the Moto X+1 is slated for an August release, according to rumors, and given the timing of the trademark, it could be that the Moto Maxx is the Moto X+1.

Here are some rumored specifications of the Moto X+1:
