why only 16.05mp?

Its been what 4 years since Olympus and Panasonic came out with the 16 megapixel sensor why hasn't there been any increase? I'm just curious because the galaxy s5 has 16mp cramped into a much smaller sensor. I know megapixels aren't everything by a long shot but still no increase at all? Although I probably would rather have a sensor that's cleaner at high iso like 12800.
