There will be an ongoing progression of small incremental improvements. But they will never make all that big a difference

They don't have to make a big difference - they just have to get "good enough."

This affects not just low-light performance but also sharpness.

The amount of sharpness needed depends on the end use.  Note how few filters there are for phone cameras that claim to increase sharpness.

In a typical user's hands, today's phone cameras produce better pictures than 95% of the other cameras ever made.  (For film, cheap processing hid any theoretical advantage of the camera or medium.)
