CES 2018: A Closer Look at Razer's New Laptop Powered by Smartphone

Razer's Project Linda is now just a concept, and, there's no information on whether or not it will ever be released commercially. The smartphone and laptop hybrid concept harkens a new era for mobile personal computing, blending the familiar Android environment with the ease-of-use of a laptop.

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. At the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week the company introduced Project Linda, a shell of a laptop powered by the company's smartphone. Ideal for both quick text entries and lengthy typing sessions, and complete with custom Android keys for navigation, app selection, searching, and more.

Where the trackpad of the notebook is present, there is a retractable USB-C port that allows you to dock the Razer Phone.

According to the press release, Project Linda is a new prototype hardware developed by the manufacturer and serves as an accessory for the newly released phone that allows the high-end phone to turn into a fully functional laptop.

Display: 5.7-inch 2K AMOLED screen Camera: 12MP+13MP rear camera with PDAF, dual LED flash + 8MP front snapper Processor: Snapdragon 835/Exynos 8895 RAM: 8GB Storage: 64GB, expandable Battery: 4,000mAh Add-ons: Dolby ATMOS and THX certified stereo speakers, 120 Hz refresh rate on its UltraMotion screen, dual SIM card slots, 4G support and more.


Having said that, Project Linda also comes with 200 GB of storage and 53.6 Wh of internal battery that charges the Razer Phone when docked. Personally, I am interested to see the final product; until then, check out a few screenshots of Project Linda below.

Perhaps the nicest surprise of the hybrid setup is the user interface, which seems inspired by Windows from a functionality standpoint in such a way that it boosts productivity but shouldn't attract a lawsuit.

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.

Second, the system doesn't solve any major issues for users.
