A little math suggests that a bigger iPhone would have 4.94-inch screen

A crazier prediction: iPhone Plus is real, and huge – Marco.org:

“The recently rumored, larger-screened ‘iPhone Math’, or more likely ‘iPhone Plus’, is plausible as an additional model (not a replacement) alongside the 4’ iPhone. And there’s a good chance that it would have a 4.94’, 16:9 screen.

The theory is easy to understand: perform John Gruber’s Mini-predicting math backwards. The iPad Mini uses iPhone 3GS-density screens at iPad resolution. What if an iPhone Plus used Retina iPad screens with iPhone 5 resolution, keeping the rest of the design sized like an iPhone 5?

Its 640 × 1136, 264 DPI screen would measure 4.94’ diagonally, and it would look roughly like this next to an iPhone 5:”

 Not going to lie, I think I would buy this instead of an iPhone 5S/iPad Mini combination.
