We did support hikey board in snappy 15.04, but also without opengl.
But I think hikey is a suitable platform if we continue to support ubuntu
core 16 on it. Because there are lots of resources for this hardware.
I heard someone is doing the job to support ubuntu core 16 on hikey, but
I don't know what's the progress now.
