    If encryption was disabled, you can use NAND flash chip programmer to recover data.

    or in other words, no data is recoverable because your phone was encrypted

New versions of Android force disk encryption. Since your device is not so old and it was unrooted before the wipe happened, the encryption was definitely enabled.

I do not want to disappoint you, but the fact is that no data can be recovered anymore from the device. The encryption uses a security key that is stored on-device. A new encryption key is generated when you reset the device to encrypt the storage again. So, in the absence of the old encryption key, you will not be able to decrypt the data even if your recovery software manages to recover some bytes.

I'd recommend to avoid wasting time and other valuable resources to recover the data now. It is permanently gone.
