      Because the current 415 an 615 series are lagging behind MT6732 and 6752 respectively.
      These Snapdragon 620 and 625/629 look really promising as the Adreno 306 is a joke and the 405 can barely keep up with a dual core Mali T760.

      its expensiveness happened because you wanted it so bad.
      the arm processor has cheap price around 20-25usd could produce a $650 phone but intel i3 price is about $100 could make only $400 laptop

      demand beat cost for determine price
