At the global consumer electronics show (CES) 2018, the gaming titan unveiled a 13.3-inch laptop, which puts more sense into Razer Phone's being into this world. The infamous gaming company is known for their wide variety of gaming peripherals including laptops, mice, displays, and more.

Project Linda's chassis is made out of CNC aluminium and weighs under 1.25 kg while being 15 mm thin. 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. Not through magic, but rather, you pop your smartphone into a laptop and the phone breathes life into it.

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. Like with Razer Blade, you also get an RGB backlit keyboard with Razer Chroma. "Project Linda combines the best of both worlds, bringing a larger screen and physical keyboard to the Android environment, enhancing the experience for gaming and productivity". Connectivity afforded via Project Linda includes a built in 3.5-millimeter audio jack, a USB-A port, a USB-C charging port, 720p webcam, and a dual-array microphone, giving a range of options for communication and external devices.

5p charge on plastic bags could be extended to smaller shops
So far, nine billion fewer plastic bags have been used as a direct effect of introducing the charge. We support regulatory action to extend the plastic bag levy to small retailers.

If you didn't know, Razer's Linda turns your smartphone into a laptop.

The laptop shell doesn't have the standard internals of a laptop, instead being mostly a case for a 1080p display, 53.6 Whr battery, and a hard drive to extend the phone's storage. However, for sound output, it relies on Razer Phone's speakers as it doesn't have any built-in speaker, and, it only works with Razer Phone and not any other Android smartphone.

"Razer's Project Linda concept is an ultraportable laptop design powered by the Android-based Razer Phone". It's just a concept for now, but for Project Linda to catch on with professionals or creatives, the price would have to be extremely low to make it win out over a second laptop. Talking about the device, Razer co-founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan said, "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".
