WE NOW KNOW what the Samsung Galaxy S8 will look like, courtesy of a leaked press render that has surfaced ahead of the phone's 29 March unveiling.
The render, naturally, was outed by notorious tipster Evan Blass, who posted the official-looking image on Twitter (below).

The image doesn't reveal much about the handset that we didn't already know but confirms that the Galaxy S8 will feature a near bezel-less design, with Samsung set to bin the physical home button in favour of a wraparound display that fills the front of the device.
What's more, the array of sensors above the edge-to-edge display adds weight to rumours that the device will sport an iris scanner, much like that which debuted on the now-defunct Galaxy Note 7.
The 29 March date shown on the handset's screen is a nod to the phone's official unveiling in New York City, which Samsung confirmed during its MWC presser on Sunday.
No further clues are given in this latest leaked image, but leaks have revealed pretty much all there is to know about the Galaxy S8 and its S8+ companion.
The smartphones will tout 5.8in and 6.2in QHD Super AMOLED curved screens, respectively, and both will come powered by the Snapdragon 835 processor that on Monday made its debut inside Sony's Xperia XZ Premium. Samsung's Siri challenger, dubbed 'Bizby', is tipped to make its first appearance on the duo of smartphones, after failing to show up inside the Galaxy Tab S3.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ are also expected to feature 4GB RAM, 64GB of entry-level storage, Android Nougat, IP68 certification, 12MP and 8MP camera and 3,000mAh and 3,500mAh batteries, respectively.
Samsung, naturally, hasn't confirmed when the S8 and S8+ will go on sale, but rumours point to a 21 April arrival. µ
