The innate picture quality is limited by small sensor and lenses of smartphone. But the large leaps in mobile imaging are mainly the impressive progress of Ai computational photography e.g Google Nightsight. In certain trying settings, a smartphone can produce great pics in quick time. Depth mapping is slowly trying to reproduce the thin dof "bokeh" shots of traditional large aperture interchangeable setups.

Software can greatly untap the physical limits of hardware.

DSLR/mirrorless interchange setups give much better IQ by virtue of having much larger sensors and better glasses, and intricate manual controls over the process. I think big makers need to start incorporating some level of machine learning algorithms to bring it to the next level.
