With the announcement of Qualcomm snapdragon 865 other tech companies decided to up their game, of course, this includes the Chinese tech giant Huawei. this year they are going to launch the kirin 1020(aka Baltimore).
It's an ARM-based processor that uses the Cortex-A78 cores, unlike the kirin 990 that uses Cortex A76 cores. The kirin 1020 is rumored to be power efficient and 50% faster when compared to the kirin 990, with the 5nm chipset the engineers were able to fit in 10.6 billion transistors which is a notable improvement. the kirin 1020 is said to have an integrated 5G modem which started with the kirin 990.
The kirin 1020 aka Baltimore is alleged to launch with the Huawei mate 40 series, this would make the Huawei mate 40 series the first smartphone with a 5nm chipset.
There are rumors about Apple's Bionic A14 being a 5nm chipset, which will presumably be used on later versions of iPhone. Qualcomm also plans on releasing a 5nm Snapdragon chipset in 2021. At this rate of development, we will be talking about 3nm chipset in no time.
