Razer Debuts Project Linda, Turn Your Phone Into A Full Gaming Laptop
Another CES has begun and with it many new projects are being shown by some of the tech industry’s most cutting edge companies. Razer has been one such company that has used CES as a platform to announce new devices and concepts. Late last year, Razer announced that they were developing a new gaming phone. Now, a new laptop with a dock for the new Razer Gaming Phone has been revealed by the popular peripherals company. The project is currently titled Project Linda, and new details about the paired devices have been made known.
Razer has posted new information about the freshly unveiled laptop on their official website. The laptop has a dock in front of the keyboard for laying the gaming phone in. While looking much like a Razer Blade laptop, the smartphone is the main source of computing power when docked, rather than the laptop itself. The laptop has a 13.3 inch 4K 120Hz touchscreen, which displays the phone’s screen when docked. The docked phone then becomes a secondary display and acts like a touchpad. The keyboard itself is fully backlit, powered by Razer Chroma, and has special buttons used for navigating through apps on the Android phone.
As per the site:
- “Razer’s Project Linda concept is an ultraportable laptop design powered by the Android-based Razer Phone. The docked phone serves as an intelligent touchpad, bridging the gap between handheld entertainment and laptop convenience. The Razer Phone’s performance, display, and dual front-firing speakers combine seamlessly with Project Linda’s larger screen, keyboard, and battery to provide the ultimate mobile hybrid setup for gaming, creativity, and productivity.”
- The 13.3” Quad HD touchscreen extends the 120Hz experience available on the Razer Phone to a larger display, providing fluid motion and vibrant visuals. The 13.3” touch display of the laptop is ideal for gaming, entertainment, and creativity, or for multiple apps to run side by side. 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.
- Enjoy the comfort and precision of a backlit laptop keyboard, powered by Razer Chroma. Ideal for both quick text entries and lengthy typing sessions, and complete with custom Android keys for navigation, app selection, searching, and more.
- Enjoy Android games in new ways with Project Linda. Connect a mouse for precise control and trigger actions quickly with the built-in keyboard. Take advantage of the second display for easy access to menus, maps, and more while in game.
- Project Linda features a built-in power bank that quickly charges the Razer Phone while docked. Also, with 200GB of internal storage, Project Linda can house local apps, games, media, and offline phone backups.
- Crafted from CNC aluminum, the durable 0.59-inch thin laptop is ready for the road. The Razer Phone docks easily into Project Linda and connects with a simple key press, seamlessly integrating the devices. Immersive audio is delivered through the front-firing speakers of the Razer Phone or enjoyed with a set of headphones connected to the 3.5mm jack.
Project Linda also features 200 GB of internal storage, and an additional power bank. The laptop is only a concept right now, but it is definitely a smart idea that many would be interested in, especially those that game on the go.
