You can always count on Evan Blass to spill the beans on all of the latest, unreleased smartphones and he has come through again with our best look yet at the Samsung Galaxy S8. The leaked press render gives us a clear look at the front of the device and its clear lack of a Home button.

We can also see minimal bezels all around along with a bevy of sensors in the top bezel of the phone, which should encompass everything from the ambient light sensor to the front-facing camera to the iris scanner (first seen on the Galaxy Note 7, RIP). No additional details were provided with the image, although we can clearly see on the lock screen Samsung’s planned March 29th announcement date for its flagship smartphone.

The standard Galaxy S8 is rumored to have a screen that measures between 5.7 and 5.8 inches and will feature a QHD (2560x1440) display like its predecessors. The larger Galaxy S8+, however, is confirmed to include QHD+ display (3200x1800) that measures 6.2 inches diagonally.

The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ will be powered by either a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 or Samsung’s own Exynos 8895 SoC depending on where the devices are sold. For example, home market (South Korea) smartphones will likely get the Exynos 8895, while those of us in the United States will get the Snapdragon 835. Other specs confirmed for both smartphones include a 12MP Dual Pixel main camera, 8MP selfie camera, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, microSD slot, wireless charging, IP68 dust and water resistance, Samsung Knox security, Samsung Pay support and support for the DeX desktop dock.

Samsung will unveil its Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ at an event in New York later this month, and worldwide availability is scheduled to begin on April 21st.
