Share

Razer, the leading lifestyle brand for gamers, today revealed "Project Linda", a 13.3-inch laptop design powered by the Android-based Razer Phone.

Razer has been toying with the idea of using a display as a touchpad for providing a greater degree of customization options for gamers in its Razer Blade Pro series, and Project Linda nearly seems like a continuation of this concept.

Project Linda is basically the shell of the Blade Stealth, so it's very lightweight and thin, although it is about half an inch thicker than the Blade Stealth.

From there Project Linda relies on the Razer Phone to not only power the entire experience, but also act as its touchpad, secondary screen and even system speakers. You can register on the Razer site to receive updates and announcements related to the project.

Project Linda also intelligently uses the best parts of the Razer Phone to their full potential.

The 13.3-inch Quad HD touchscreen display can allow the Android platform to scale into a true laptop style experience.

Currently, Razer does not have a planned launch date for Project Linda, and that is because it is a prototype, so it's still far off from launching or being available. that means there's also no pricing available. "The 5.7" touchscreen of the Razer Phone can function as a touchpad, or as an interactive second touch display for custom interfaces or additional apps. In fact, performance on Project Linda was surprisingly smooth.

This being a Razer device, modeled after the Blade laptops, the keyboard is tricked out with the company's signature Chroma keyboard. Not stopping there, Razer have put a 53.6 Wh internal battery that can rapidly charge the docked phone up to three times while away from a charger.

According to Razer there are a lot of use cases that could benefit from Project Linda's specific form factor and technical specifications.
