According to an APK teardown, Google reportedly working on the mid-range devices to counter “flagship killers” like OnePlus. They are expected to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor.
The first rumour made rounds on the internet in early April when the company was said to release these devices in June. Various reports indicate that Google is working on two new Pixel phones, and they’re named after fish.
As noted by @arbycalzone Google's SDM710 device indeed does have a "fishy" codename, being called "Bonito": https://t.co/gvDHgYq1nj which _PERFECTLY_ fits the mid-range orientation – Wikipedia says: "Bonitos are a tribe of medium-sized, ray-finned predatory fish…" 🙂 https://t.co/G95tImjfEz

Ismartphones n a teardown of ARCore 1.5 by folks at Android Police, a device with codename ‘Bonito’ was spotted in the list of handsets that support Google’s platform for mobile augmented reality. The ARCore list is regularly updated with new devices that support AR, hinting that the new device may get launched soon.
In June, however, no such announcement was made and a tweet by German ‘scoop-master’ Roland Quandt said that Google is definitely working on a Pixel phone that will be powered by the new Snapdragon 710 chipset.
The first bares the name Bonito and a new fish-themed codename of a supposed device: Sargo. The smartphones are apparently being developed for emerging markets like India. According to mysmartprice, Sargo could be a smaller variant of Bonito.
