Football fans shopping for a new smartphone need look no further than Verizon’s new Moto X, which is designed to look and feel like a leather football… one that carries a Verizon logo. The handset is available to order now, priced at $119.99 —¬†the same price as the white and bamboo model.

On the inside, the new Moto X — which you won’t get anywhere else — is identical to the originals. It has the same 5.2-inch Full HD display, the same Snapdragon 801 processor, and the same 2,300mAh battery. The only difference, then, is the new oxblood¬†leather finish applied to its back.

But that’s a nice difference if you’re a football fan, and because this handset is a Verizon exclusive, you shouldn’t see so many of them around.
