The Sony's have been hands down better cameras for years in this category with the RX100's.

Similar thing can be said about Sony A7 series of cameras.

However, 'better' (depends on who you talk to) does not translate into sales and market shares.

In the film days, Minolta, Olympus and Pentax also had 'better' cameras at one point or another... but look how they are doing now.

Do we expect a SX70HS or a superzoom camera with 1" sensor to compete with Panasonic FZ2000/Sony RX10?

Canon already has this covered, it is the G3 X. The SX70 line on the other hand is not about image quality, but about the most zoom they possibly can cram in a compact, so they use the smallest sensors reasonable to ease reaching this goal. The Nikon P900 presumably uses a very small sensor, holds the record with a 83 times zoom; and have you seen one in real life? They are huge. A 1" 83 times zoom could not even be carried by a single person, as the amount of glass required would be insane.
you must be joking about G3x competing with FZ2500 and RX10(III and IV), doesnt have EVF and is a laggard compared to other two both in terms of video and continuous shooting.

the G3X needs a Mark II like the G9 and G7 before it.
