We’ve had the reports of Google working on a mid-range phone since long, even before the Pixel 3 launch. During the same time, Google teased a mini-sized phone on its Instagram handle hinting the arrival of a mid-range Pixel which didn’t happen in reality though. Now, Google’s latest ARCore app on tear down reveals two new devices which are most likely to be the upcoming mid-range phones by the company.

The tear down of latest ARCore v1.5 app done by the folks at Android Police reveals something interesting compiled up in the source code. The source code had the list of supported devices including Huawei’s Mate 20 X, Honor 8X, Honor Magic 2, T-Mobile’s OnePlus 6T (single SIM) and Xiaomi’s Mi Mix 3. Surprisingly, the list also contained two unknown devices with their code names as Bonito and Sargo. If in case you aren’t aware of, Google has been code-naming its smartphones after fishes and given that Bonito and Sargo are names of fish species, it is most likely that the phones could be yet another upcoming Pixels by the software giant.

Nonetheless, even Nokia has been following that trend for code-naming their smartphones so its not yet safe to assume that these are actually Google-made phones.

As far as the previous reports are concerned, Google has been working on a mid-range smartphone that is reportedly being powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC. Lately, the device has also been reported to arrive either by the end of 2018 or by the beginning of next one. Moreover, if this turns out to be true, then Sargo is most likely to be a smaller and toned-down version of the duo since Sargo is a smaller fish than Bonito. Anyways, let’s wait for the upcoming leaks and reports to see what Google has actually been cooking in. Till then, stay tuned.

Xiaomi will be introducing its new smartphone series called CC on July 2 with the upcoming Xiaomi CC9 smartphone. While there is very few information about the specs of the device, the Chinese manufacturer has revealed that it will sport a 32MP selfie camera with improved Beauty mode.

Cc9

The post on Weibo says the camera will “restore the natural skin texture” and will “record the beauty of each moment”. While this seems all very flashy, this is just marketing talk about the new advance filters that founder and CEO Lei Jun was talking about earlier this month.

This new information suggests Xiaomi is aiming to target the selfie-centric customers and the younger generation. The company was not always known for good camera specs, but with recent smartphones like the Redmi Note 7 Pro, it has taken an edge over its competitors.

An image of the retail box of Xiaomi CC9 has surfaced online showing it will house a 4,000 mAh battery. Other than that, it doesn’t give much information about the specs.  As per rumours, the two smartphones in the CC series called Mi CC9 and the Mi CC9e will include an in-display fingerprint sensor, a glass body, Gorilla Glass 5 on both the front and back. They are said to sport triple camera setup at the back and a selfie camera placed on a waterdrop notch. Previously leaked renders show the handsets in white, but we can expect other vibrant color options too.

It is said to come with a 6.39 inch AMOLED display and a triple camera setup consisting of a 48MP sensor, an 16MP sensor and a 12MP sensor. On the other hand, the Mi CC9e is expected to carry a 5.97 inch AMOLED display, Snapdragon 710 chipset and a triple camera setup of a 48MP sensor,  an 8MP sensor and a 5MP sensor.

The smartphone’s specifications were a mystery but now a Twitter user @RODENT950 has revealed the smartphone’s specifications. Another Twitter user who goes by the name Huawei Club has posted about the device’s alleged chipset.

According to the tweet by @RODENT950, the Honor 9X Pro will feature a punch-hole LCD with a screen size between 6.5 inches to 6.7 inches.

Honor’s 9X series will likely to have the standard Honor 9X and the Honor 9X Pro. They are the successor to the last year’s Honor 8X and Honor 8X Max. Considering the recent US ban on Huawei and the number of companies that have severed ties with the company including Google, the smartphones may face some problems in the near future. It is not clear whether it will run the Android-based EMUI or Huawei’s Hongmeng OS that is rumored to debut on the second half of 2019.

There is no word about the launch date but the FCC and 3C certification hints that the launch is imminent. Like its predecessors, they are likely to be launched in the Indian market.

The processor was announced earlier this year, and the only smartphone running on it currently is Mi 9 SE.

Coming to the design segment, the Vivo Z1 Pro comes with a punch hole camera design, which houses a 32MP in-display selfie camera, as opposed to the 16MP camera onboard the Vivo Z5x. However, there isn’t much information about the display. In the rear, there is a triple camera setup, which is believed to be a depth sensor and wide angle sensor along with the main shooter.
