S Yu: What would make this really competitive is that they could start adding real-time HDR, and by that I don't mean to automatically pull the shadows and highlights out of the original RAW into an OOCJPG but really merge multiple exposures into a single RAW, or intelligently map a single longer exposure to a single file to give cleaner shadows while retaining highlights...I believe Google Pixel already does this somehow?

"... it will take a quick burst of shots, find the noise, and then remove it and process it into a single RAW." - Which camera are you referring to? AFAIK the final result (with RX100) i a JPEG
....
"... though I’m not sure if that feature exists anywhere" - Nowhere, AFAIK

...but really merge multiple exposures into a single image? My old RX100 III is capable of that (and pretty sure the RX10 IV can do. Either for creating HDR or for getting very high ISO with quite low noise. Of course the image you get is JPEG, and I think it couldn't be different.

Josh Leavitt: If Nikon partnered with Samsung to put their 1" DL sensor technology into the Galaxy phone lines, or even a subset of the Galaxy phones, I'm pretty sure it would reshape the way professional photographers view smartphones. The trick would be making a pancake telescoping zoom lens compact enough to not otherwise detract from the "phablet" looks and ergonomics. I'd take a 1" sensor smartphone over a dual 6mm sensor smartphone any day of the week - especially if it included proprietary Nikon imaging technology.

And, last but NOT LEAST, technology of 1" sensors (including the ones foreseen for the DL cameras), is by SONY, not by Nikon!
Sony already manufactures smartphones, BTW!

telecomprofi: I wonder how much already released samples would cost on ebay ;-)
Now it is officially the rarity.

NO "released sample" actually exist. Selected "Nikon Ambassador" photographers who received the preproduction cameras for testing and writing "wow!" reviews had to give them back to Nikon. And, strange, none of the published pics shows "Nikon DL-xx-xx" in the EXIF data. Actually, I don't remember of any pic allegedly shot with a DL coming with embedded EXIF.

beavertown: 5 generations of RX100 won nothing.

Hmm... RX100 IV won the 2015 roundup. Apparently the reason for not choosing RX100 V this time was the high price. Or touchscreen is more valuable than stellar video performance?
