Razer unveils Project Linda that turns your Razer Phone into a laptop

The Razer phone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor paired with 8GB of RAM. The company feels that the new hybrid laptop concept will being a new era of mobile personal computing.

Having the Razer phone docked into the laptop also charges the phone thanks to a built in power bank, ensuring that you're ready to take the phone on the road as soon as you're done with your gaming session. However, it could be a good fit for the on-the-go professional who occasionally needs a laptop form factor. Given that the notebook is running Android (thanks to its Razer Phone "brains"), there are Android-specific keys for app selection, voice search, screen capture, navigation, etc.

Razer's Project Linda lifts a phone to laptop level

Designed for mobility, the unibody CNC aluminum chassis of Razer Project Linda is just 0.59-inch (15 mm) thin and weighs under three pounds (1.25 kg) including the docked phone.

"The 13.3" Quad HD touchscreen extends the 120Hz experience available on the Razer Phone to a larger display, providing fluid motion and vibrant visuals. Inside the laptop is 200 GB of storage, allowing for offline backups and additional local media and app storage. It features a 3.5-millimeter audio jack, a USB-A port, a USB-C charging port, a 720p webcam, and a dual-array microphone, according to the release. A user may complete the laptop input experience by using the docked phone as a touchpad, or a mouse may be connected for precision control in games and apps. Razer is likely still tinkering around with the concept to get it right, with plans to commence a commercial production perhaps being somewhere in the near future. One example is with gaming, where you'll be able to play the game on the laptop screen and then access the menu on the phone screen. It still requires the carrying of, essentially, two separate devices, and doesn't necessarily bring equitable power or performance of a second standalone laptop. The laptop is now a prototype and tagged under Project Linda, but there's no certainty of seeing it in the market anytime soon, or at all.
