A 4.7 inch Apple iPhone 6 is compared size-wise with a current batch of heavyweight Android models
With speculation that Apple will be launching one, and possibly two, larger screened iPhone models this year, how would these phones stack up against today's top Andorid handsets? First, some background. Apple is expected to offer a 4.7 inch version of the Apple iPhone 6 with a 16:9 aspect ratio. And while there is a rumor about a 5.5 inch phablet sized iPhone, this device apparently is being delayed to 2015 as Apple cannot seem to find a supplier that can offer a 2mm thin battery for the larger phone.

So at the very least, it seems that Apple will release a 4.7 inch Apple iPhone 6 later this year. How would such a model stack up against current Android fare? A MacRumors forum member who goes under the handle deuxani, decided to create a picture of a 4.7 inch iPhone 6, and just as in a police line-up, let the witnesses decide if the phone is guilty.

The first line-up features the 4.7 inch iPhone against the similarly sized 4.7 inch Motorola Moto X and the 4.7 inch LG G2 mini. Despite the fact that all three phones have the same screen size, it is the Apple device that towers above the two Android handsets. A 4.7 inch Apple iPhone 6 would seem to match up better with a pair of LG made models: The 5 inch Nexus 5 and the 5.2 inch LG G2.

Lastly, a 4.7 inch Apple iPhone 6 would look puny in between the 5 inch HTC One (M8) and the 5.1 inch Samsung Galaxy S5. It will be interesting to see if Apple makes other adjustments (form factor, footprint, bezels) if it does introduce a larger screened Apple iPhone 6 later this year, as expected.
