I've often wondered the same thing myself. Seeing what the phone manufacturers are doing with those little tiny sensors, just imaging what the real camera makers could do with their big sensors. Even if they don't do all their models, just make one, say, aps-c body with the brains of a Pixel 3. Mind blown!

Processing power seems to be the limiting factor. The larger the sensor, the more powerful the processor and read out speed needs to be. Even APS-C may be too much data to process.

Your probably correct, but they could drop from 24 to 12 MP's which is still good enough if that would help move data fast enough. If Sony uses a stacked CMOS 24 MP sensor (like the a9 has) and new processor in the a6500 successor. That should be able to move 12 MP files fast enough. They could even use pixel binning technology for even better low light capability. Besides, 12 MP are pretty large files IMHO.
