CES 2018: Project Linda Turns Razer Phone Into A Laptop

CES 2018: Project Linda Turns Razer Phone Into A Laptop CES 2018: Project Linda Turns Razer Phone Into A Laptop

Project Linda is a concept that aims to blur the lines between the smartphone and the laptop. The phone docks in the laptop shell where you'd normally find the touchpad, and the screen then works as a touchpad, or a second monitor for gaming. Otherwise, it's pretty much totally dependent on the Razer Phone, which itself is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and 8GB of RAM.

"Android power users and laptop enthusiasts share a need for performance in a mobile form factor, which we provide with our award-winning Razer Phone and Razer laptops", said Razer co-founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan.

Finally, Project Linda improves Android gaming and productivity.

So what makes Project Linda different? The Razer Phone acts as a touchpad once docked, and the keyboard is, of course, backlit with Razer Chroma LED lighting. Take Project Linda from Razer, for example, a laptop concept where the brains and control system are provided by the company's flagship smartphone, and also serves as the trackpad.

In a nutshell, that means Netflix members subscribed to the premium plan will be able to get the absolute best out of the Razer Phone's already impressive HDR10-enabled Quad HD display with up to 120 Hz refresh rate, and dual-firing, front-facing Dolby-optimized speakers. It's got 53.6 Watt-hours of capacity standard, and Razer says this can charge your phone from 0 to 100% a full three times.

Inside the laptop is 200 GB of storage, allowing for offline backups and additional local media and app storage. Razer also includes some basic laptop amenities, including a 720p webcam, USB-A and USB-C ports, and a 3.5mm audio jack.

For right now, Project Linda is just that - a project, with no price or intended release date.

I for one can't help but feel like this project is a bit of extra justification for the Razor phone's shortcomings and existence.

As with many of Razer's CES reveals over the years, this is a prototype for the time being and may not make it to the market.

When docked, the interface switches to a more traditional laptop-style one, complete with a taskbar. With a fan base that spans every continent, the company has designed and built the world's largest gamer-focused ecosystem of hardware, software and services. For starters, there is a slot for the Razer Phone to dock into where the trackpad would usually be.
