Oh, wow!

1) With tiny phone camera sensors we can get a long depth of field and very sharp photos, but also beautiful bokeh with the software photography even in dark conditions.

Wrong, you can get manipulated fake unsharp backgrounds but that still does not equal "beautiful bokeh".

2) With full-frame sensor and wide aperature lens you can get beautiful bokeh, but with software photography it is impossible to convert the unsharp background to sharp one.

Yes, soooo.....? Why would you want to convert unsharp backgrounds to sharp ones? Just get your focus and DOF right.

3) Full-frame sensors makes the mirrorless cameras large and heavy.

And easy to hold and balance larger lenses on as well as allow more room for decent exposure circuitry and fast storage.

The latest small mobile phone cameras gives us the prelude of the possiblities of the software photography with the small sensors and automatic GPS location data.

"Software photography" does not exist, "software manipulation" does. You want a phone with a decent camera module, by all means get one. But please don't confuse it with a real camera.
