Apple has already equipped its upcoming A12 SoC with the same process and in the next three iPhone models, the process will see the day of light. Interestingly, the Kirin 980 is also one of the processors based on it.

Why 7nm?

While it might take some time for the manufacturers to know the true potential of a 7nm process node, TSMC is already claiming a 20 percent increased performance in the Kirin 980.

While you might know of Kirin 970 as one of the most powerful processors of the past, the upcoming 980 will also sport a number of added functionalities. Huawei’s upcoming flagship models based on Kirin 980 when combined with its extravagant hardware base, will deliver some exclusive performance results.
