CES 2018: Project Linda Turns Razer Phone Into A Laptop

CES 2018: Project Linda Turns Razer Phone Into A Laptop

With this in mind, it should come as no surprise to learn that Razer is looking to do even more with the device. Ideal for both quick text entries and lengthy typing sessions, and complete with custom Android keys for navigation, app selection, searching, and more. Unsurprisingly, the expert gaming laptop manufacturer is going a very different route from Microsoft's Windows Continuum project or Samsung's DeX Station in "bridging the gap between handheld entertainment and laptop convenience".

Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan says, "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". At the moment, in the early prototype stage, it simply mirrors what's being shown on the display, but it's clear Razer sees a lot of potential in further exploring the idea of a phone-powered laptop. "The Razer Phone 5.7-inch display can be used as a touchpad, or as a second screen for access to apps, tools, and more". Also, with 200GB of internal storage, Project Linda can house local apps, games, media, and offline phone backups.

Razer Project Linda is just a concept at present, but given enough enthusiasm from Razer Phone owners could see the light of day at some point. "We are incredibly excited to deliver Netflix entertainment on a smartphone like never before, enabling us to take full measure of the Razer Phone's HDR10-enabled display and dual-firing, front-facing Dolby-optimized speakers and THX-certified headphone connectivity". You also get a pair of USB ports, one USB-A and one USB-C, for attaching accessories such as a mouse, as well as a 720p webcam, a microphone, and a 3.5 mm audio jack (something the phone itself doesn't have).
