I believe the low end sub $400 is dead

I think high end compact cameras- say $800-1500+ are still viable for a few higher end models. I think the low end is dead and just a few remnants remain. Why buy small sensor camera when you can just use a phone.

Honestly I think the entire sub $1000 dedicated camera market is on life support.  Mainly due to economics. A company has to sell in large volumes to make the market viable.  For the casual photographers their smartphones are good enough for their needs.
