Unfortunately, flagship Android tablets don't get the love as their smaller counterparts, mobile phones. Even the Samsung Tab S3 uses an older Snapdragon 820 if I am not mistaken. To be fair as well, Apple also uses their older SOCs for their tablets, but because they are fully in control of developing their own SOCs, they have the ability to give their tablets a significantly better SOC than their mobile counterparts.

The good thing is despite using an older SOC, because of the bigger space and better cooling on tablets, they tend to do much better under sustained load. So at the end of the day, these older SOCs still do relatively well in tablets.
Ya, tablet market is smaller and more sluggish than smart phone market but it doesn't mean a new tablet model should comes with older SOC while at a much higher price that close match to the latest SOC model ... put in other way, if M5 is priced as M3, definately will have the surprice element to capture a much better market share ...

In fact, Huawei is pushing hard to clear most its 960 powered phones stock since last Nov in China market..
