Samsung has done a fair job of keeping its Galaxy S8 under wraps, but serial leaker Evan Blass has once again shown off the goods before the official event.

Blass published a render for the device to his Twitter account, revealing a smartphone with thin bezels, a curved screen and curved corners akin to the LG G6 (hands-on).

The leaked render also points to the confirmed 29 March reveal date for the device, showing a 29 March date on the screen.

As for features, Samsung is widely tipped to use its own Exynos 8895 processor in some models, while other models will get the cutting-edge Snapdragon 835 silicon.

Other supposed Galaxy S8 specs include an upgraded 12-megapixel main camera with object recognition and a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. It’s understood that Samsung is finally opting for on-screen virtual buttons instead of physical keys.

Samsung is also expected by some to pack an HDR-capable display into the Galaxy S8, as seen on the ill-fated Note 7. It wouldn’t be the first HDR-capable smartphone revealed this year though, as LG’s G6 also touts this feature.
