But still DOUBLE THE RETAIL PRICE..... Seriously people should realize already how greedy cr@pple is....

Of course, cheaper components to squeeze more $$$ in profits. Typical Apple, cheaping out on product components for more profits from their m-i-n-d-l-e-s-s er I mean loyal customers.

Mediatek is far far away on Qualcomm.
Nobody loves Mediatek when we are talking about midrange and flagships.

Mediatek better do a good job at it. Helio M70 sounds promising. Hope our 5G network are ready by 2019. So many phone maker planning on this same route.
