Mysterious Intel CZ120 smartphone clears the FCC

Mysterious Intel CZ120 smartphone clears the FCC
We stumbled upon a new smartphone this morning as we were browsing through the FCC's database. A new Intel-branded smartphone, to be more specific – a handset that surely has an Atom processor beating under its hood. It is labeled as the Intel CZ120 and it is pretty much surrounded by mystery at this time, given the lack of technical details about it.

However, there are a few things about the Intel CZ120 that the FCC filing reveals. For starters, it is 128 millimeters tall and 67 millimeters wide, with a thickness of 10 millimeters. Dimensions like these indicate that its display could be around 4.3 inches in size, but that is just a guesstimate. Moreover, a photo reveals a camera with a dual-LED flash on its back. Unsurprisingly, the handset offers the whole shebang of connectivity features we'd expect, including Bluetooth, NFC, Wi-Fi, and GPS. Last but not least, it can run on 3G HSPA+ networks on the 850/1900MHz frequency bands, or on 1750MHz WCDMA networks.

While the handset is labeled as "Intel smartphone", we aren't expecting it to be sold under the Intel brand. That's because we've had Intel smartphones clear the FCC in the past, only to end up being marketed under different names – the Orange San Diego (model AZ210), for example. It is also worth mentioning that the Intel CZ120 might never launch at all as it could be nothing more than a reference device meant for testing, not an actual consumer product.

perhaps Intel will make a smartphone and tablet. this is a good way to demonstrate their Mobile Chips capabilities. to the world and gain some sales to OEM's?

Come on PA... take a chance and live on the edge. Even if the CZ120 is only a reference device and not intended for consumers, what could they be referencing here? Tizen maybe? Intel does happen to be a backer of Tizen develoipment... Perfect chance to speculate on something other than upcoming iDevice concept renders and obscure Chinese brands/OEM's and you missed it. I'm a little disappointed.
