huawei mate 30 could be the first phone with a 7nm euv chipset the kirin 985

The Huawei Mate 30 could be become the first smartphone to ship with a chipset built with an Extreme UltraViolet (EUV) process. That chipset will be the Kirin 985 and will be produced at the TSMC foundries.

It will still be a 7nm chip, however the EUV enhancement will allow for 20% greater transistor density. This will be marketed at 7+ nm. The benefits of EUV will become more pronounced as nodes get smaller (e.g. 5nm).

The Kirin 985 will come with increased clock speeds for higher performance (and perhaps some power savings too), but the CPU and GPU architecture will be largely the…
