Additional micro-architectures which I would like to test are 'High Efficiency' A53 and A55; 'high performance' A72, A73, and A77, and 'Prime' X1.

Could buy 2x of whatever we decide, alternatively I'd be able to run FATE on them as well.

A official devkit is ~1600 EUR, obviously the phone form factor is not ideal for automated testing but it is significantly cheaper. But yes, if anyone can find a Snapdragon 888 in a devkit form (i.e. something I can plug into a network easily) then that would be preferred. Or if someone is able to find one or multiple devices which cover the A55/A77/X1 micro-architectures then that works as well.
