While in most S23 Ultra, you will find the HD+, FHD+, and WQHD+ resolution, in a selected few, you might come across HD+, FHD+, and QHD+ resolution, in other words, QHD+ instead of WQHD+. But truth be told, it shouldn’t be a great deal of inconvenience as both have the same screen resolution, which is 3088 x 1440 pixels.
