2nd gen 7nm, new architecture
Apple’s new iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max come with A13 bionic, the second-generation 7nm process manufactured SoC.
It is all about the 7nm and die-area
Wafers are very expensive, especially for the 7nm leading-edge process, and 10nm is not cheap either. If you need to use a device in a battery-operated environment, then power consumption plays a critical role. But Qualcomm thinks that 5G deployment is happening much faster than was the case with 4G and wants to expand the reach to the Snapdragon 700 and even 600 series.
