The Sony's A7s III Full Frame has a 12MP sensor which many reviewers agreed that it can take noise free Videos in dark scenes and also great Photos.

Many Smartphone have settled for 12MP sensors too.

But not such option exist in m4/3.

Why do you think that is, would you buy a 12MP m4/3 camera ?

The reason it is 12mp is because of video . We do have the 10mp GH5S

Not to forget G!, GH1, G2 GF1, G10.... 

Yes, modern 10-12 Mp are intended for low-light video work where they excel up to 4K resolution. For stills, not so sure unless you never crop.
