ARCore APK teardown reveals Google working on two mid-range phones

Googe Bonito and Google Sargo

An APK teardown of Google's latest ARCore v1.5 has revealed support for two mysterious codenamed devices, which can not be linked to any known phone.

Still, if this is a hint of things to come, and if Quandt is right that at least one of these phones will land in the first half of 2019, then we'd expect to start hearing a lot more rumors soon.

Google traditionally names its Pixel phones after fish, and both of these names are types of fish.

Bonito isn't the only codename found in the APK file, however, as the outlet also found a reference to Sargo.

A teardown of the latest version by AndroidPolice contains two codenames that can't be linked to any known device. Now, it is worth noting that there's no guarantee this device is made by Google, but its fish-related codename does suggest that this is the case. According to Wikipedia, Sargo is the name for a white seabream and Bonito is described as "a tribe of medium-sized, ray-finned predatory fish in the family Scombridae".

The teardown, performed by Android Police, specifically reveals the names of two specific unannounced Google handsets, 'Bonito,' the codename of a rumoured unannounced midrange Pixel phone, and "Sargo" a completely new handset.

So we can assume Bonito is sort of like the XL device while Sargo is the non-XL device. These are all just speculations by the way, so take with a pinch of salt.
