Google plans to add two more smartphones to the Pixel range. The phones with the code numbers "Bonito" and "Sargo" were seen in the code of the last APC ARCore. So far, there is no official information that they are future smartphones from Google, but their fish-based codes suggest that this might be the case. While the phone with "Bonito" code is speculative to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor, the "Sargo" handset is expected to be the smaller version of the two.
The first footprints of a mid-range Google Pixel smartphone date back to April this year when a report said Google is working on a new Desire mid-range smartphone powered by the Snapdragon 600 Series and the Snapdragon 700 Series of SoC mobile devices. The latest information also confirms a June report, when a pattern said Google is working on an integrated Snapdragon 710 SoC smartphone, coded as Bonito. In the same month, another report speculated that Google is working on an average "mobile" device with Snapdragon 710 that could be launched in the first half of 2019.
Now, in an ardor of ARCore 1.5 by people at Android Police, a device with the code "Bonito" has been seen in the list of phones supporting the Google platform for mobile augmented reality. The ARCore list is periodically updated with new devices supporting AR, suggesting that the new device may be released soon. In particular, the list also includes "Sargo", code name that was not previously reported. Although there is no clarity on this device, according to Google's appointment trends, the new fish-related name indicates another smartphone from the company. The report speculates that the two smartphones could match the smaller and larger configuration of the Pixel and Pixel XL series.
So far, there are no official or specific details of what Google offers. Because it is pure speculation, it is advisable to take the information with a salt peak.
To remind you, before Google switched to Pixel Premium, the tech giant used to sell comparatively cheap Nexus smartphones that offer the same Android experience for the purists. With this line, the company might seek to regain the audience it lost in the competition with top-class market leaders such as Apple and Samsung.
It is also worth noting that new smartphones that have received Teardown-based ARCore support are Huawei Mate 20 X, Honor 8X, Honor Magic 2, Mi Mix 3 and OnePlus 6T (Single-SIM).
