1) This is not about the SD 888, so you didn't even read the article you're commenting on.
2) Anyone can make something as fast as the M1, they just need to use larger cores, bleeding edge silicon and a lot of accelerators in a closed ecossystem. Such a thing would be economically suicidal for any brand which hasn't organized a cult around itself.
Here, incase you didn't read the article: "Arm says the Cortex-X2 is 30 percent faster than its predecessor, which is used in custom designs in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 and Samsung Exynos 2100chipsets." I'll paraphrase: its 30% faster than the SD 888, which is not all that fast.
clearly you could have made your point much better without, wrongly, being condescending.
