According to new reports, Samsung is not making as many subtle changes to the Galaxy S23 Ultra as previous leaks suggested would be the case. Instead, a renowned leaker believes that the Galaxy S23 Ultra will look practically identical.

Last month, OnLeaks shared apparent CAD renders of the Galaxy S23 Ultra, Samsung's not premier flagship smartphone. Thought to be arriving in early 2023, subsequent analysis r revealed that the CAD designs highlighted a few display bezel changes to make the display more uniform. As a result, @UniverseIce described the Galaxy S23 Ultra as the 'best smartphone designed by Samsung', even with its litany of similarities with the Galaxy S22 Ultra.

Subsequently, @UniverseIce has rowed back on their earlier position. Writing on Twitter, the leaker now asserts that the Galaxy S23 Ultra lacks the symmetrical bezels shown in OnLeaks' renders. Instead, the unreleased handset has a narrow forehead and a thicker chin, as is the case with the Galaxy S22 Ultra. Additionally, neither the 3x optical zoom camera nor the laser focus sensor sit flush against the Galaxy S23 Ultra's back panel, another similarity with its predecessor.

In short, @UniverseIce believes that the Galaxy S22 Ultra and Galaxy S23 Ultra will look identical. Supposedly now the Galaxy S23 Ultra's final design, @UniverseIce aimed at Samsung CEO Tae Moon Roh (TM Roh) by adding that the stagnation between generations owed to Roh 'saving as much as possible, including design'. OnLeaks has not responded to OnLeak's claims yet, although it seems that the Galaxy S23 Ultra will still feature a less curved chassis than its predecessor.
