According to a renowned leaker, the Galaxy S23 Ultra will have a thinner chin than its predecessor. While not quite even bezels, the changes have led @UniverseIce to declare that the Galaxy S23 Ultra could be Samsung's sharpest smartphone design to date.

Only a few days have passed since @OnLeaks shared Galaxy S23 Ultra renders, supposedly calculated based on leaked CAD designs. Additionally, the leaker provided Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23 Plus renders, covered separately. Subsequently, @UniverseIce has analysed @OnLeaks' Galaxy S23 Ultra renders, highlighting a few differences between next year's flagship and the current Galaxy S22 Ultra.

As the image below shows, @OnLeaks' renders suggest that the Galaxy S23 Ultra has slimmer bezels than its predecessor, for the most part. Although the Galaxy S22 Ultra is no slouch in this department, it appears that Samsung has made a few improvements between generations. On the one hand, Samsung has reduced the bottom bezel thickness for the Galaxy S23 Ultra, which now measures 1.9 mm, down from 2.6 mm on the Galaxy S22 Ultra. Additionally, the distance between the display edge and the frame has shrunk from 3.6 mm to 2.8 mm.

Seemingly, Samsung has built the Galaxy S23 Ultra with a thinner frame than the Galaxy S22 Ultra. On the other hand, there is a nominally wider gap between the display's side and the frame, up from 2.3 mm to 2.4 mm. Presumably, this change is because of the squarer curvature that Samsung has adopted with the Galaxy S23 Ultra.

In short, the Galaxy S23 Ultra has a thinner chin and a less curved look than its predecessor. However, Samsung is still no closer to achieving even bezels, which its competitors have already managed. Still, @UniverseIce considers the Galaxy S23 Ultra as 'the best smartphone designed by Samsung' yet, despite the overwhelming similarities between it and the Galaxy S22 Ultra.
