Chipsets are a tough component to talk about when you’re discussing Huawei. That’s because the U.S. has banned foundries using American-made technology to produce chips from shipping them to the Chinese manufacturer. And what makes this so urgent this year is that Apple and Huawei are the first to bring chips made using the 5nm process node to their products. Simply put, the lower the number of the process node, the higher the number of transistors that fit inside a square mm. This typically means that more transistors are inside the component offering greater performance along with more energy-efficiency.
