Razer unveils Android laptop-phone Hybrid Project Linda at CES 2018

Share

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.

Razer's award-winning hardware includes high-performance gaming peripherals, Blade gaming laptops and the acclaimed Razer Phone.

Project Linda's chassis is made out of CNC aluminium and weighs under 1.25 kg while being 15 mm thin. Looking at the dimensions of the trackpad surface area, it looks like you can only dock the Razer Phone and nothing else. Not through magic, but rather, you pop your smartphone into a laptop and the phone breathes life into it. Since the phone naturally has a screen, the touchpad also becomes a second display for anything; I could imagine it showing wallpaper or even a file browser when summoned.

Another perk of having the Razer phone on hand is that you'll be getting the superior sound quality that the phone has to offer, seeing as its speakers point up.

Razer's Project Linda is essentially a phone dock with keyboard and screen that's meant to give users a full-fledged laptop experience. The phone's Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 835 mobile platform and 8 GB of RAM deliver responsive performance, instantly transforming Project Linda into an Android laptop.

The content from the Razer Phone will then be shown on the Project Linda's large display; you can use the provided physical QWERTY keyboard of the laptop and the Razer Phone itself as a trackpad for a genuine laptop experience. It features a 3.5-millimeter audio jack, a USB-A port, a USB-C charging port, a 720p webcam, and a dual-array microphone, according to the release.

Uber said in a statement that, like all companies, it has various security procedures in place to protect its data. Company spokeswoman Melanie Ensign confirmed that the tool existed, but said it was no longer in use.

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.

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.

Razer, a brand known for making top-of-the-line products for gaming, has announced Project Linda, along with the HyperFlux technology. However, if Razer decides to release it commercially, it will have to make it compatible with other Android smartphones as well to increase its success rate.
