The 41 megapixel Nokia 1020 is the new leader for high resolution images - and its a smartphone.

One of the interesting features - and I don't fully understand it - is an oversampling process that provides loss free zooming on a 5 megapixel image.

Clearly the camera wars are at work in the smartphone market. This may be where Nikon enters the market with some sort of smartphone. The concept of oversampling can be used in a number of ways - including extending dynamic range or extending focus. If you can do it in software, they can move the software to the phone.
