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.
Problem is they are ironically more expensive than the loved mobile phones counterpart.

It is hard for me who owns a true premium specced (at its point of release) Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 to swallow such spec at such prices. With all the scarification for media consumption like lack of headphone jack to expect as well.
