What are the technological/physical limitations regarding smartphone camera advancements? Will we ever see them match traditional ones?

In:

Small lens size limits light entry, so no, will probably never match the quality of a traditional SLR

Mostly the size – to properly magnify distant objects lenses need to be thick or with enough space between them, and to capture image well in low light they have to be wide.

Photosensitive elements got much better with time, but that can’t entirely substitute worse optics, also nothing is preventing camera makers from using same elements with far better optics they have on cameras and pulling ahead more.
