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

by Habeeb Onawole 0

Google is reported to be working on a mid-range phone codenamed Bonito. The phone is said to be powered by a Snapdragon 710 processor and is scheduled to launch in the first half of 2019. A new discovery has revealed there might be a second phone that is codenamed Sargo.

The discovery was made in the latest version of Google’s ARCore application. As it has become the norm, a teardown of the latest ARCore app usually reveals new devices that have gained ARCore support. Once in a while, it also reveals an unreleased device or in this case, devices.

A teardown of the latest version by AndroidPolice contains two codenames that can’t be linked to any known device. The codenames are Bonito and Sargo.

Googe Bonito and Google Sargo

The name Bonito was first revealed to be the codename of Google’s mid-range Pixel by Roland Quandt months ago. However, this is the first time we have come across the name Sargo. Since the codenames Google uses for its devices are taken from fishes, there are speculations that Sargo is also a Google device. Google search both fishes and you will find out Sargo is smaller than Bonito.

So we can assume Bonito is sort of like the XL device while Sargo is the non-XL device. Sargo could also be a different device entirely that is indeed smaller than Bonito but not related to it in any way. These are all just speculations by the way, so take with a pinch of salt.

The new devices that have gained ARCore support based on the teardown are the Mate 20 X, Honor 8X, Honor Magic 2, Mi MIX 3, OnePlus 6T and OnePlus 6T Single (likely T-Mobile edition based on it having only one SIM slot).
