I mean... they are.
What do you think an router has?

molaram3761180dyou can do all sorts of things with it if you jailbreak
RememberMe15382180dNot even barbones, that chip can take on most laptops.
AlmondSauce13952180dThat's been possible for a while now, they've had more than enough horsepower for basic computing tasks for years.
Just comes down to whether it's marketed for that ;)
But that's true for anything "chip" related.
X86 has it's weirdo extensions that prevent's it's death... And a lot of "insane" shit under the hood (Caching, TLBs, Micro Ops, ...)
ARM has no sanity. Everyone can hot glue a mainboard with it's own specifics and several (non-arm) chips together and an ARM processor together and call it a ARM platform... Linus had one very specific Rant about this *chuckles*
A smartphone is exactly that. Plus an LCD & battery. (Non-arm chips like camera, AI, networking if not included in ARM processor, ...).
So ... Duh?
In the end, everything is sand if you toast it hot enough xD
