Physics will not change anytime soon. Unless phone camera sensors shrink to even smaller sizes, let's say under 1mm per side, this ain't happening. Well it could happen today so long as you don't mind your phone being a few inches thick.

Hello Ken, thank you for your feedback. I was just wondering because the Huawei P30 already has a 125mm (35mm equivalent) telephoto lense . I think they use the folded optics approached so I guess its a matter of time before Apple, Google , Samsung and other smartphone manufacturers come out with a 200mm folded optics telephoto lense for their smartphone.
