Razer's Project Linda Turns Your Razer Phone into a Laptop PC

Now that smartphones are gettings as powerful as some mid-range laptops, Razer thinks it's time to use these devices to also act as the brains of your next laptop. 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. And the Razer Phone's 120Hz refresh rate translates to smooth visuals on the larger 13.3-inch laptop's display as well. In a nutshell, it's a laptop shell, which uses the Razer Phone as the touchpad. Say hello to Project Linda, a prototype created to turn the Razer Phone into a full-fledged Android notebook. Razer is playing to the phone strengths (the speakers), much in the same way that other smartphone brands are partnering with well-known companies on their strengths (Huawei with Leica). For now Razer is gathering fan feedback, but we wouldnt get too attached – juts take Linda for what it is, a cool-looking concept.

Being the first device that officially supports both premium HDR10 and 5.1 Dolby Digital Plus, the Razer Phone will be given access to a special version of the Android Netflix app that enables users to enjoy the full scope of the two audio and video formats on their devices.

With a full sized keyboard in place, users will benefit from a more responsive and faster typing experience.

Currently, Razer does not have a planned launch date for Project Linda, and that is because it is a prototype, so it's still far off from launching or being available. that means there's also no pricing available. There is a 3.5mm headphone jack on the laptop, a USB Type-C charging port, a dual-array microphone, and a 720p webcam. The phone's screen is mirrored on Project Linda's display and the phone itself becomes the trackpad. The notebook doesn't have any speakers, instead relying on the front-firing speakers of the Razer Phone. The docked phone serves as an intelligent touchpad, bridging the gap between handheld entertainment and laptop convenience.
