The tipster revealed that Google is working on a smartphone featuring a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC and it is codenamed "Bonito.' Rumours about Google's supposed mid-range Pixel smartphone emerged in April this year when reports revealed that the tech giant is working on new mid-range 'Desire series" powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 and Snapdragon 700 series mobile platform.

Google might be prepping a couple of new lower end smartphones, if some "fishy" details revealed its latest ARCore Android package (APK) are indication.

The discovery was made in the latest version of Google's ARCore application.

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. Once in a while, it also reveals an unreleased device or in this case, devices. However, this is the first time we have come across the name Sargo. Like the other codenames, sargo is a type of fish-it can be found off the coasts of California and Mexico, along with some other spots. Since the codenames Google uses for its devices are taken from fishes, there are speculations that Sargo is also a Google device.

We've reached out to Google for comment on the Pixel 3 XL's reported overheating issues.

It's worth noting that both Bonito and Sargo are named after smaller sized fish.
