The Bonito codename has been around for a while, though it was suspected cancelled when Blueline and Crosshatch emerged as the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. The phone is said to be powered by a Snapdragon 710 processor and is scheduled to launch in the first half of 2019.

Rumours of a mid-range Pixel device have been circulating for some time, and a new look at the latest AR Core app from Google has led to the discovery of two new Google branded device code names. Android Police found Bonito and Sargo in the list of supported devices for ARCore and with some educated guessing, it is evident that they are Google-made devices. Now, the APK doesn't have any information on what these are, but one thing they are is types of fish, which is relevant because all of Google's Pixel handsets have used types of fish as their codenames. Once in a while, it also reveals an unreleased device or in this case, devices.

Meanwhile having high blood pressure was associated with a more than 80% higher relative risk in women. However, the risk factors appeared to be stronger for women than men.

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

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. Google search both fishes and you will find out Sargo is smaller than Bonito. These are all just speculations by the way, so take with a pinch of salt.
