12 Androids Outmuscling Apple's iPhone

Android outmuscling Apple's iPhone story updated with two new phones

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Apple's (AAPL - Get Report) next iPhone is not only late, but a little light under the hood when compared with the growing list of Google (GOOG - Get Report) Androids hitting the market this summer.

In fact, by the time the minimally-upgraded iPhone 5 arrives in September (presumably), there will be at least a dozen beefy Androids available at Verizon (VZ - Get Report), AT&T (T - Get Report), Deutsche Telekom's (DT) T-Mobile and Sprint (S).

One of the reasons Apple shares have gone nowhere this year is because the company has not given its fans what they want -- another blockbuster iPhone.

That moment won't come until next year, when Apple delivers a souped-up 4G LTE iPhone. Until then, Apple is expected to offer a refreshed iPhone this fall, with a new dual-core processor and a better camera.

But this won't placate the worriers who see Apple falling behind in the superphone race.

Rivals like Motorola (MMI - Get Report), Samsung, HTC and LG are turning out super-charged, ultrathin Androids with bigger, more vivid screens, better cameras, fast dual core processors and super speedy 4G LTE connections.

The technical advances of Android phones aren't exactly making Apple look cool this summer.

"The processor and display quality improvement in the Android camp is proceeding at such a clip that Apple will be under a lot of pressure to deliver a substantial jump in iPhone specs next autumn," said MKM Partners' analyst Tero Kuittinen. "It's not clear how Apple can battle the rapid Android evolution unless it picks up the pace of its iPhone launches."

Read on for a daunting dozen Android phones that are dwarfing the iPhone.
