If I buy a brand new smartphone for a high price, I want it 100% new new, not with last year main hardware component inside. It's a simple as that. No excuses and exceptions here.

You are the perfect consumer for corporations wanting to sell stuff beause "hey, it's new you should get one!"
[deleted post]I mean, if you can't refute the argument I put forward, what's the point of responding?
I mean, the QSD 665 is a processor released in 2019 and the QSD 675 is a processor was released in 2018. Does that make the QSD 665 the better?
If you cannot say No, then you cannot be objective in your reasoning. And the name of the processor has very little effect in the discussion as well, otherwise you would be trying to falsibly argue that the QSD 653 is a better processor than the QSD 636 which simply isn't true. Heck, it's better than the QSD 810 as well, if you're so focused on naming and dates, and can't look past that and focus on the attributes of the SoC itself.

I don't care about technical data and other things. The year of release matters. Kirin 980 was released in 2018, Huawei P30 - 2019. It is cheating to my point of view. No one does that with high-end expensive smartphones. Full stop. End of story.
griffin, 21 Jun 2019galaxy note 10 will come with old chipset tooNot true. Galaxy Note 10 will be released this year (2019) with SD855 or Exynos 9820 (chipsets of 2019 as well) so all good here, no cheating.
VectorR, 21 Jun 2019Regardless that you sad, chipset is from 2018, smartphone is from 2019. This is very wrong by ... moreThe Kirin 980 is using a new 7nm-level lithography.
The Exynos 9820 is using a refined 10nm lithography (dubbed "8nm").
The Kirin 980 is using the latest Cortex A76 CPU core.
The Exynos 9820 is using an older Cortex A75 CPU core, plus Custom M4 core.
The Kirin 980 is using the latest Mali G76 GPU.
The Exynos 9820 is also using the same latest Mali G76 GPU.
...so you see the Kirin 980 is actually the latest and greatest, it was only surpassed slightly by the QSD 855 which simply was released at a later date.
The Exynos 9820 was released in 2019, and is in 2019 flagship phones.
If the Exynos 9820 is deemed a Flagship SoC, by default the Kirin 980 should be too.
PS: If anyone wants to compare the different category phones by size, here:

This is very wrong by default. Again, I don't care how good Kirin 980 it is. It is not the latest and greatest, shiny new anymore. Only Huawei does this dirty trick.
VectorR, 21 Jun 2019Worth to mention that the latest and greatest Huawei P30 series utilize the last year chipset ... moreI disagree.
The Kirin 980 may have debuted at the end of 2018, but its definitely a 2019 Flagship SoC. It's slightly better than the Exynos 9820, and slightly worse than the Snapdragon 855. It's the same case with the Apple A12-Bionic chip, yes it was released in 2018 but most of the units were sold in 2019 and it was competing in 2019.
As for my list of phones above, you can search for them yourself here on GSMArena!
...I'm holding out to see the new ASUS RoG Phone 2, hopefully its awesome.

Top 2019 Low-end phones to consider:
...simply too many for me to go through, sorry : (
Top 2019 Entry grade phones:
Luxury/Flagship = Best processor + waterproofing/removable battery
Upper Midrange/High end = Best processor + good specs all-round
Midrange phones = QSD 636 upto QSD 730 + decent specs all-round
Low-end = Obscure MediaTek processor upto Snapdragon 632 + cheap specs all-round
Entry-grade = has to be so cheap
Good list to be honest. From low range to flagships. Different price bands so pick one according to your budget/limitations of each phone
Worth to mention that the latest and greatest Huawei P30 series utilize the last year chipset - Kirin 980. I don't care how fast it is etc but I'd consider it as a drawback keeping in mind that this fact doesn't make these phones any cheaper.
Fall 2019 looks more interesting and promising (Pixel 4, iPhone XI...).
