Could a X40 be made with Samsung's 108mp sensor?

Link to DPR news item is

https://www.dpreview.com/news/0799990809/samsung-officially-unveils-108mp-isocell-bright-hmx-mobile-camera-sensor

In this article we see it is 9.6mm x 7.2mm.

Meanwhile the sensor in the X30 (long out of production) is 8.8mm x 6.6mm.

The size difference is small.  It might be very interesting to see this sensor used in any new compact camera, especially a Fuji X30 successor.

Comments please!
