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

10 January 2018

Once in place, the Razer Phone's 5.7 inch display turns into a touchpad, much like the screen-based touchpad in one of Razer's other laptops, and together with a 13 inch Quad HD screen, a 720p web cam, a standard USB port, and a USB Type C charging port, not to mention 200GB of storage, Project Linda is nearly like a Chromebook of sorts for gaming, except it runs Android as the Razer phone does, too. The Razer phone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor paired with 8GB of RAM.

Check out the full review of the Razer Project Linda on our sister site CNET. The Razer Phone very conveniently and swiftly docks to the lightweight aluminum laptop body, lighting up the 13.3-inch Quad HD screen in one or two seconds, and detaching just as easily.

The Razer Phone is the first smartphone from the company, and it has attracted quite some attention with the industry's first 120Hz display in a smartphone and dual-amplified front-facing stereo speakers along with powerful hardware. Nevertheless, Project Linda is still an incredibly interesting concept that would be great to see come to fruition at some point.

"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 Min-Liang Tan, Co-founder and CEO of Razer.

Project Linda features 200GB of internal storage and a built-in power bank to recharge the phone when it is docked. 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.

The keyboard is full-sized, but is optimized for the Android OS, with dedicated keys for selecting specific apps, as well as those for search and navigation, the release noted. The Razer Chroma™ backlighting is ideal for low-light situations and can also be personalized with millions of color options. A mouse can also be connected for more precise control.

If you are a gamer, you must have heard about Razer.

With the phone docked, the entire Project Linda setup is 15 millimeters thick and weighs a little less than three pounds, the release noted. It also features a 720p webcam, a dual-array microphone, a 3.5-millimeter audio jack, a USB-A port, and a USB-C charging port. As of now, it is unclear when Project Linda will hit the market.
