CES 2018: Project Linda Turns Razer Phone Into A Laptop

CES 2018: Project Linda Turns Razer Phone Into A Laptop

The battery bank in the laptop portion of Project Linda can charge the Razer Phone fully three times before an AC adapter needs to be plugged in. In fact, the core of Project Linda is actually the Razer Phone that the company released a year ago and merged it into a laptop shell. Designed in the form of a 13.3in laptop that looks uncannily like the Razer Blade, Project Linda is little more than an aluminium case with a screen. The 13.3-inch display is a Quad HD touchscreen with 120 Hz refresh rate. You'll also find 200GB of extra storage which Razer sees as either being used as an offline backup of your phone's memory, or as a way to offload larger video and image files, or for apps that only need to be used with the phone docked.

Last year, Razer Project Valerie was one of the most exciting things we saw, and this year at CES 2018, the Razer Project Linda is something that one-ups both Samsung's DeX Station and Windows Continuum. Secondly, all of the power comes from the Razer Phone itself, so instead of usual laptop hardware under the hood, there is instead a battery bank for longer life. Adding to this, the Razer Phone will in the near future get a Netflix app update to enable HDR content to be played. The Razer Phone goes right up front and is installed where the trackpad would normally be on a laptop. The docked phone serves as an intelligent touchpad, bridging the gap between handheld entertainment and laptop convenience.

Enjoy Android games in new ways with Project Linda. But if Razer can hit an aggressive price on the Linda, then it could provide a solution for customers who want something for work without having to spend a lot more on a full notebook. There is a 3.5mm headphone jack on the laptop, a USB Type-C charging port, a dual-array microphone, and a 720p webcam.

There's also a relatively small market for such a device as there can't be all that many Razer Phone owners out there, but as a concept I think it's absolutely incredible.
