Razer's 'Project Linda' turns your phone into a gorgeous laptop

And you will have all that on your Razer Phone when you watch Netflix shows and movies.

The laptop dock looks nearly like a Razer gaming laptop.

As this is still very much a proof of concept, there wasn't much that could be used or tested on the Project Linda hardware. Essentially, it's a dock that runs the phone itself into 13.3 inch Android gaming computer, which is kind of a neat concept for those gamers constantly on the go. What's different about Project Linda is that it has a gaming edge, both in its design and the fact that it's built specifically for the Razer Phone. You have to think about your computing loadout: for many, that consists of a smartphone and a laptop. Docked where you'd typically find a trackpad, the Razer Phone functions as a touchpad and an interactive second display.

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.

Its 13.3-inch Quad HD touchscreen extends the 120 Hz experience available on the Razer Phone to a larger display, aiming to provide fluid motion and vibrant visuals.

Razer has announced a few new PC peripherals at CES 2018 this week, but the one that really caught our attention was Project Linda.

As with many of Razer's CES reveals over the years, this is a prototype for the time being and may not make it to the market. Razer also includes some basic laptop amenities, including a 720p webcam, USB-A and USB-C ports, and a 3.5mm audio jack. But instead of a traditional Intel-inside PC, this is powered by the company's own Razer Phone, an Android device with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 CPU (which makes it similar to the first wave of Snapdragon-powered laptops from HP, Lenovo and others).

The triple-headed snake trademark of Razer is one of the most recognized logos in the global gaming and esports communities. For now Razer is gathering fan feedback, but we wouldnt get too attached – juts take Linda for what it is, a cool-looking concept.
