    A week full of leaks ended with an actual look at Samsung's upcoming flip phone, the Galaxy Z Flip!

    06/01/2020 Duração: 21min

    On the drive to Las Vegas for CES 2020, JV is overly optimistic that he and Jaime Rivera would actually have time to talk about what they're excited at this year's show. Unfortunately, the two were unable to link up for any significant period of time so Josh brings you a tease of what he wants to see on the show floor (and all of the stuff we can't talk about yet). After that, he responds to some of your comments from last week! We'll see you after the CES madness finishes up and bring you our extensive highlights from the show!Subscribe: http://bit.ly/pocketnowsubhttp://pocketnow.comFollow us:http://flipboard.com/@Pocketnowhttp://facebook.com/pocketnowhttp://twitter.com/pocketnowhttp://instagram.com/pocketnow
