They are obligated to because this is a rebranded phone. If they change the chipset it basically becomes a new phone and it needs to be certificated by Google, which it wont right now and thus people wont buy.

how is 300$ midrange in the least

Yeah the normies will not know the difference of a 710F and 810 anyway... They will only look at the MP of the camera and storage!
