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

The bottom of the Google Pixel 3XL

To our knowledge, the Bonito and Sargo codenames are not already attached to an existing hardware in Google's product stack.

The Bonito device appeared on GFXBench last month showcasing Snapdragon 710 processor and corroborating previous rumours.

While the ARCore is frequently updated with new features and a list of devices that support AR, the inclusion of the devices indicate that the launch might happen soon. As is typically the case, it wasn't accompanied by any information about the device.

A teardown of the latest version by AndroidPolice contains two codenames that can't be linked to any known device. Google usually assigns fish-themed codenames to its smartphones, and Sargo is indeed a type of fish. Back in June, reliable leaker Roland Quandt tweeted that Google was working on a mobile device that would use the mid-range Snapdragon 710.


This also isn't the first time we've heard mention of Bonito.

The folks at Android Police discovered the references to Bonito and Sargo in a teardown of the ARCore v1.5 APK, noting that some people questioned if Bonito was canceled after it didn't launch alongside the Pixel 3 (Crosshatch) and Pixel 3 XL (Blueline). Sargo could also be a different device entirely that is indeed smaller than Bonito but not related to it in any way.

We would however take all of this with a pinch of salt for now, as there's still not much to go on and this would be the first time Google has made a mid-range phone.
