Best phone for RAW photography?

I've decided that:

1) I hate the default photo processing on phones

2) Lightroom Mobile with the 1TB plan, auto import of DNG files, and the ability to specify a default import preset (I use RNI's Kodak Tri-X preset) is a pretty convenient and cheap workflow

With that in mind, I'm wondering what the best phones are right now for RAW photography. I know that most reviews (i.e. DXOmark) focus on JPEG output, but that's not especially important to me.

Currently I have a Samsung Galaxy S20 FE which is generally pretty good, but it drives me bananas that it doesn't support RAW output for its tele lens. Apparently this is true across the Galaxy line.

Thoughts? I feel like the answer is going to be "iPhone". I guess I'll add here that I like large sensors and wide apertures, but I don't know if that's a meaningful consideration at cellphone size.
