There is a EOMA-68 with Allwinner A20. So you have a cheap EOMA-68.

In my opinion, a EOMA-68 with Qualcomm it is a good idea, because is more
powerful than Allwinner A64 (Adreno 306 is better than Mali 400 MP2).

I have some doubts:
- EOMA-68 has enough power for the Snapdragon 410?
- Do you have support/drivers of the GPU in Linux (like OpenGL ES 3.0)?

In my opinion, there should be a EOMA-68 with a more basic and cheap 
hardware (Allwinner series) and other EOMA-68 with a more powerful and 
expensive hardware (Snapdragon series).
