That is to not say there are not any attainable adjustments. We have heard that the S23 Ultra could also be barely longer and wider than the S22 Ultra, though solely by hundredths of millimeters, so that you’re unlikely to note.
Additionally, leaker Ice Universe has claimed that there might be a brand new show for the S23 Ultra.
