Watch today’s Pocketnow Daily as we talk about the arrival of Android Wear 2.0 to existing smartwatches, though not many. Then we talk about the how some lucky LG G6 customers have received the phone really early. Samsung follows as we learn the price tag of DeX for the Galaxy S8, in addition to some weird partnership with Microsoft.
