CRN reviews the biggest changes with Samsung’s new flagship smartphone lineup, the Galaxy S23 series.

Display, Form Factor: S23 Ultra, S23, S23+ Versus S22 Ultra, S22, S22+
The Galaxy S23 series come with a few improvements and changes for the display and form factor.
The most noticeable change is with the S23 and S23+, which lack the bulging contour housing for the rear-facing camera sensors of the previous generation, making the phones slimmer and smoother.
The S23 Ultra, on the other hand, comes with a 6.8-inch edge display that has a larger and flatter surface area thanks to reduced curvature.
All the phones come with a new enhanced comfort feature, which seeks to reduce eye strain at night by giving the ability to change the display’s color tones and contrast levels.
The vision booster feature from the previous generation is improved, giving users three levels of lighting instead of two to improve screen visibility during bright days.
The S23, S23+ and S23 Ultra phones are slightly larger than their predecessors, though only by a hair.
The S23 measures 70.9 millimeters wide and 146.3 millimeters tall, up from the S22’s 70.6-millimeter length and 146-millimeter height, but they have the same 7.6-millimter depth (not counting the S22’s contour housing) and 168-gram weight.
The S23+ measures 76.2 millimeters wide and 157.8 millimeters tall, up from the S22+’s 75.8-millimeter length and 157.4-millimeter height, but they have the same 7.6-millimter depth (not counting the S22+’s contour housing) and 196-gram weight.
The S23 Ultra measures 78.1 millimeters wide and 163.4 millimeters tall, up from the S22 Ultra’s 77.9-millimeter length and 163.3-millimeter height, but they have the same 8.9-millimter depth. The S23 Ultra is slightly heavier, weighs 234 grams versus the S22 Ultra’s 229 grams.
