Wow. Hardware decoding of AV1 codec on such a tiny processor. Cant wait till 2020 end for such AV1 decoding boxes to come out.
My Celeron NUC can do till 360p. At 720p it starts dropping frames and just plays 1 second video every few seconds. There is setting in Youtube account where you can set it to play AV1 codec only for SD resolutions or automatically. Just looking at the demo clip, I guess everyone (even people like me who have Intel integrated graphics) can safely turn on AV1 codec till 480p resolutions to get good quality video and not tax the processor much.

I can tell you that Android 10 being somewhat new still not presented in some possible devices already like for example my newest ASUS Zenfone Live L2, they still consider Android 8 as a latest possible system, however I have seen Beta of Android 9 in September.
