The size of the rectangular rotate icon is unchanged, while the circle is nearly the size of an app. This button was first introduced in Android 9 Pie and placed on the right side of the three-button navigation bar.
After which Google introduced this floating button with Android 10’s switch to gesture navigation. While Android 12 introduced smart, camera-based rotation on Pixel phones. Third-party OEM Android devices will definitely benefit from this size increase, with Samsung’s button on tablets being particularly hard to notice.

Just head over to the dedicated beta enrolment page and “Opt out,” and you should be removed. Google is stating that Android 13 QPR1 Beta 1 is suitable for daily use for what it’s worth.
The Android 13 QPR1 does not have too many other visual tweaks as of Beta 1. The other minor one is how Quick Settings tiles now include delightful animations.
