A new code for the upcoming Google Pixel 3 has been spotted in AOSP commits. AOSP is essentially Android Open Source Project, and a commit refers to the log on any change that any of the contributing developers make on in the project. This codename “Blueline” was first spotted by droidlife, and it is likely that this will be the codename for Google Pixel 3 XL. According to the report “Blueline” is not the only codename that has been spotted on AOSP and previously, “Crosshatch” too has been spotted a number of times in the AOSP commits. It is likely that this is the codename for Google Pixel 3.
As pointed out in the report, “Blueline” is mentioned in a single commit related to a “new spam API” that Google is working on in the Android dialer. The developer added that this new API was “verified using Blueline device”. There is no new information about this device in AOSP or any other mention of the code name in the commits. This means that Google has never mentioned the device earlier.

Talking about “Crosshatch” code name, it first appeared earlier this year in January when a developer seems to have asked about the state of “LOCAL_MODULE_TAGS” regarding one of the commits. The code name first appeared in the commits in AOSP back in October last year right after Google launched it’s Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. Google has not issued any official statement about this speculation.
In the meantime, Google is working hard on the next version of its mobile operating system, Android P. The company just released the second version of its beta program, Android P Beta 2 for Google Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, and Pixel 2 XL.
