"The company just spent $50 in total to acquire engineers.." off course a mistake. The answer lies there up in the headline.

i dont think its a a15 base chip.. coz qualcomm is making its own SoC base on a9! and it has its own GPU the adreno... its not using the GPU like mali-400 that the exynos is using... qualcomm's snapdragon is like apple Axx chips!
