Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra vs S21 Ultra: A notable upgrade?

Samsung made the Galaxy S21 lineup official yesterday, including the new S21 Ultra with S Pen support and a less outrageous (but still prohibitively high) price tag. But how does this new phone compare to its direct predecessor, the first Ultra in the S series?
