CES 2018: Project Linda Turns Razer Phone Into A Laptop

CES 2018: Project Linda Turns Razer Phone Into A Laptop

As with many of Razer's concepts, there's now no release date for Project Linda.

Once docked, the phone will use its Snapdragon 835 chipset and 8GB of RAM to provide a smooth Android experience (with some custom keyboard shortcuts for faster navigation). This is because, this comes with a screen, keyboard and basically a full laptop experience, where as solutions like Samsung Dex is just a dock, and you still need to supply the monitor/display, keyboard and mouse. It is a notebook that is able to accommodate the Razer Phone and allows you to improve your productivity and workflow with the phone docked into an empty station that is present in the notebook itself. The notebook doesn't have any speakers, instead relying on the front-firing speakers of the Razer Phone. 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).

The Razer Phone is a very powerful piece of Android hardware. But it's like using a Chromebook nearly, but with plenty more power than most Chromebooks.

At CES 2018 today, Razer revealed "Project Linda", a 13.3-inch laptop powered by the Android-based Razer Phone.

When set up, the Razer Phone acts as a touchpad and even a secondary display for Project Linda. It features a full-size keyboard with Chroma backlighting for personalization. It seems unlikely that this will replace traditional Windows or Mac laptops, but Razer is, of course, still making those as well. Hit up the project's official web page for more information. This is the kind of concept that could take over the cheaper, entry-level laptop market.

While the Razer Phone has a 1440p 120 Hz display, Project Linda (in its current form) is only equipped with a 13.3-inch 1080p 60 Hz screen, although Razer said it plans on matching the two devices' resolutions and refresh rates in a new iteration of Project Linda. Among other things, the device has been praised for its fast 120Hz display and its outstanding gaming performance.
