Samsung Galaxy S20 vs S21 vs S20+ vs S21+ size comparison
Since only the Galaxy S21 Ultra carries a slightly curved display, while the S21 and S21+ go with flat panels, Samsung resorts to a slight overall bezel thickening to achieve the uniformity. In other words, Samsung has evidently managed to shrink the bottom chin to 2mm, but that’s as far as it can go, considering that this is the area that houses the display connector, and, instead of pushing further, it simply made the rest of the S21/S21+ frame of equal width.
Nothing beats uniform bezel width in an “all-screen” Infinity-O Samsung design when it comes to aesthetics, though, so we can’t wait to peruse the new front and rear Galaxy S-series design in the flesh.

We’d rather have the curved display sides than bezel uniformity for the Galaxy S21 Ultra anyway, though, as its predecessor is positively gigantic and hard to handle even without a case tacked on. The shaved-off bottom chin is an added bonus that results in a tangible height decrease as, when it comes to overall size, the Galaxy S21 Ultra is a little smaller than the Galaxy S20 Ultra (166.9 x 76 x 8.8 mm), at 165.1 x 75.6 x 8.9mm in dimensions. Still a giant, heavy phone, though.

Moreover, Samsung offers more screen real estate, as there is no unsightly notch at the top, just the front camera opening pierced into the screen in a so-called Infinity-O design.
As for the Galaxy S21+ direct competitor among the iPhone 12 series, the 12 Pro Max, well, it’s wider and heavier than Samsung’s 2021 creation, making it a relative pain to use with one hand in comparison, especially with a case tacked on.
