Chipsets used by smartphones are getting smaller and smaller nowadays, with the current smallest being only 7nm and it's from Apple and Huawei. The reasons for making them so tiny are because the tinier the better for power efficiency and silicon area size. Earlier, the largest chipmaker TSMC has taken on the challenge by making a 3nm process and planned to release it by the end of 2020. However, it will now be delayed until early 2021 because of the pandemic.
