I think the thing we're seeing is phone cameras really are THAT good these days. And more convenient. That mixed with the fact that a Fujifilm x100V, or even X-e4, or crap even an X-t4 is so tiny realistically you either need the camera that will fit in your pocket, or the pro grade camera that will fit in your hand. That middle ground seems reserved for the go pro's these days.

There is a good market for fixed lens superzoom cameras, both with 1" or 1/2.3" sensors because lenses with wide to very long zoom lenses aren't possible with a smartphone yet.
