Razer is well known for being innovative and making award winning gaming laptops and at CES 2018 the company flaunted their new Project Linda concept.
Keep in mind that this is only a prototype at this point but you have to admit it’s a pretty cool concept. With Project Linda you get the best of both worlds. It’s basically Razer’s way of turning a powerful Android gaming smartphone into an actual laptop. Sure we’ve seen other electronics companies attempt hardware concepts like this but in this case you can repurpose the newly released Razer Phone, which was designed for gamers, to be an actual laptop trackpad. The Razer phone can also be used as a second display or for running additional Android apps.
All you do is simply insert the 5.7-inch Razer Phone via USB Type-C where the trackpad is located and voila you’ve now turned a powerful handheld Android gaming device into the convenience of a laptop with a larger display. It’s the perfect hybrid solution for gamers and creative artists and the most innovative one we’ve seen to date. Android apps run just as smoothly and seamlessly on the laptop similar to what you’d expect from a high-end tablet PC.
The laptop itself has a vibrant 13.3″ Quad HD touchscreen. It also has a stylish QWERTY backlit keyboard with built-in custom Android keys and Google Assistant buttons. The laptop hardware is powered completely by the phone and you’ll also find an additional 200GB of storage space under the hood of this bad boy along with extra batteries. It also has a built-in power bank that provides quick charging for the Razer Phone while it’s docked.
Of course its obvious that Project Linda was built with gaming in mind but it’s also a great portable device for productivity related tasks.
