Razer's new Project Linda is a phone-laptop hybrid

10 January 2018

"Imagine a future where the power of the Razer phone merges seamlessly with the versatility of an ultra-portable laptop...the best of both worlds", Razer's narrator opines in a promotional video, bragging that the hybrid offers a much larger screen for mobile gaming and a quality keyboard for getting work done in mobile apps. It's useless on its own, but you can plop your Razer smartphone right below the keyboard and access your device on a larger screen with a full keyboard and mouse support, albeit still running Android.

For those who don't know, the Razer Phone is powered by a Snapdragon 835 processor, 8GB of RAM and has an impressive 120Hz display.

The area where the trackpad is usually placed is where the Razer Phone gets docked on the Razer Project Linda. The mobile device supports refresh rates up to 120 Hz and a Quad HD display.

The battery bank in the laptop portion of Project Linda can charge the Razer Phone fully three times before an AC adapter needs to be plugged in.

This year's concept piece is called Project Linda (the company insists its code-names all have significant meaning, but won't say exactly what that is).

That said, Razer's intent is to provide "enhanced productivity and differentiated gaming experiences" with Project Linda.

Razer won official "Best of CES" awards an unprecedented seven years in a row, including innovations such as the Razer Switchblade (2012), the Razer Edge tablet (2013), Project Christine (2015), and the Razer Blade Stealth and Core (2016). In Razer's case, there's supposed to be 200GB of internal storage, as well as a 3.5mm audio jack, USB-A port, USB-C port (which is occupied by the power adapter plug in), a 720p webcam, and dual-array microphone.

Existing Razer Phone users will also benefit from the Netflix and Razer partnership with an over-the-air update later this month. The company isn't slowing down as it has unveiled another piece of awesome hardware.

Razer's software platform, with over 40 million users, includes Razer Synapse (an Internet of Things platform), Razer Chroma (a proprietary RGB lighting technology system), and Razer Cortex (a game optimizer and launcher).

Razer recently showed off its new smartphone as it looks to expand its gaming reputation into more markets.

The Texas ruling only concerned whether the lawsuit can move forward, and was not a decision on the merits of the controversy. "We hope that the Supreme Court will reverse its own unfortunate judgment earlier", Brinda Karat told the English daily.
