Huawei Mate 30 could be the first phone with a 7nm EUV chipset - the Kirin 985

22 March 2019
The advantage of EUV is 20% higher transistor density. Huawei aims to become more indipendent with HiSilicon supplying 60% of chipsets.

--VM--, 22 Mar 2019You are right man .Right On (smile).

Sounds pretty interesting compared to Apple trhrottling chips and Samsung much more slower chips than Snapdragon equivalents.

On HUAWEI's side it's more or less a rumor, with people speculating that it might come with it using TSMC's process node, but we can't immediately say that it'll come with it am I right? Of course, we'll see if this is true when the time comes. Who knows, maybe HUAWEI will release it earlier than SAMSUNG, just saying

Tech Expert, 24 Mar 2019To be frank later year's tech of Sd and Samsung outperform HiSiliconSo are you telling me that Exynos 9810 or Snapdragon 845 perform better than Kirin 980 all things considered?

So let me get this.TMSC making the Kirin 985. Why is HiSilicon not making it then. So cheaper CPU me thinks.

So in short, the KIRIN 985 is basically an overclocked version of the KIRIN 980 of some sort, thanks to the brand new Extreme UltraViolet process huh, interesting. Would be great if other semiconductor companies such as Qualcomm, SAMSUNG's EXYNOS & MEDIATEK start to manufacture chipsets with these too to be honest, especially for those high-end flagships that are going to be launched in the second half of the year

So are they still going to throttle their performamce under load ?

Yay for Huawei, I hope it ooutdoes the Exynos and Snapdragon of 2019 and performs on par with those of 2020

If the mate 30 does not come out before the iPhones it will not be the first (again).

No wonder Huawei goes up and up and up.
In some years they will stay at the top instead of Sammy, and it will be well deserved.

Samsung should be first. Unless they are foolish and don't use it in the note 10 or anything

Slowdown man. SS 10nm+++ can't catch up soon enough.

It's not necessarily the size of the chipset but the performance of the chipset to what counts I reckon. Whether it is 7mm,9mm or 10mm it is how it performs is what is important. Like having a top of the line Mate 20 Pro now without the LTE Bands required to work on T-Mobile and Verizon makes the top of the line smartphone useless in to use in America. Or ,maybe a top of the line smartphone with a great chipset but poor audio from speaker/s or poor antenna reception for wifi and cell reception making size of chipset totally useless. The overall package and performance of components used is what is important.
