Frying the chip is not going to be an issue since they will be only squeezing as much extra performance as they can within the same or preferably smaller thermal/power profile - a more power-efficient SoC means more power budget left for extra screen, talk or standby time on a given battery.

Finfet has been around for quite some time. It was first proposed in 1999 by Berkley researchers. "Huang, X. et al. (1999) "Sub 50-nm FinFET: PMOS" International Electron Devices Meeting Technical Digest, p. 67. December 5–8, 1999" And later implemented by Intel in late 2011 under the name tri-gate or 3D transistors.
