Motorola’s Moto X launched with a price tag of $199 on a 2-year agreement for a 16GB model, and $249 for the 32GB model. Both of those prices include the option to have the device fully customized to your liking, just like we had done shortly before launch, through Motorola’s Moto Maker tool.

With the holiday season fast approaching it’s not a complete shock to start seeing talks of a price drop for Motorola’s prized jewel. What is surprising is the fact that the rumors come less than 2-weeks after the device even launched. But according to @evleaks, who is notoriously accurate when it comes to leaking information, that’s just what’s going to happen in Q4.

Along with the rumored price drop, it looks like we’re going to finally see the wood backs Motorola has stated will eventually be available through Moto Maker on the Moto X for a $50 premium.

Even with the extra cost for a wood back, should you go that route, you’ll still be able to get a Moto X for a lot less than those of us who jumped the gun and purchased one right away should the rumors hold true.
