Obviously smartphone observers have very big expectations on the Kirin 985.
How not, its predecessor, Kirin 980, is known to have a gahar performance.
The Huawei chipset once topped the popular benchmark site AnTuTu at the beginning of 2019 (Honor Magic 2 and Huawei Mate 20 series).
It's still unclear what Huawei smartphone series will use the Kirin 985, but certainly, it's a flagship smartphone.
Apple A12 Bionic, Snapdragon 855, and Kirin 980 are the most powerful high-end chipsets at the moment.
They have one thing in common, which is produced by Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC).
A recent report says that they will introduce a 7-nanometer manufacturing process with the latest technology.
The technology is EUV (Extreme Ultraviolet Lithography), a technology that allows the chipset to be designed as small as possible but produces faster performance.
The interesting thing is that the Kirin 985 will be produced with the above technology.
Huawei prefers the name Kirin 985 compared to Kirin 990 for their next chipset.
That indicates that they will make a small upgrade to the Kirin 985.
Quoted from Phone Arena, EUV technology will increase the clock speed efficiency by 10 percent compared to Kirin 980.

The Kirin 985 will be mass produced at the beginning of the third quarter.
Currently around 45 percent of Huawei smartphones have used their internal chipset, Kirin.
At the official launch of the Kirin 985 with its smartphone, the number was expected to increase to 60 percent.
Huawei's ambition, with the presence of the Kirin 985 and other new Kirin chipsets, Huawei smartphones with the Kirin chipset will increase to 70 percent by 2020.
