I for sure know that debeloping hardware takes ALOT of time.

Looks like phone wll not be avaible Q1 2019 as they first said...
Why scary though? Due to the potential delays?

That would be the half empty view.
The half full view would be that they know enough how product design works so they anticipate that things can go wrong with the iMx8 (be it delays on the NxP side, or with software or hardware integration problems), and so they are keeping options open to fallback to the proven platform iMx6, to be able to fulfill the project. That was announced during the campaign, so not much new.

Truth must be in some middle ground...

From the anouncement it seems to me they are pretty much set on using the i.MX8M unless something catastrophic happens.
That would also answer my previous post: According to ARM, the i.MX8M ist Spectre-proof.
