Razer's New Laptop Uses Their Upcoming Phone To Power It

Razer won't go into specifics around Project Linda's internals, but we do know it has enough battery to fully charge the Razer Phone three times over, and should last you almost all day if used like a laptop.

But on the specs side, things are far more sparse, because this laptop is powered by the Razer Phone, a 6-inch Android device that's powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset. The Razer Phone docks easily into Project Linda and connects with a simple key press, seamlessly integrating the devices. It sports a 13.3-inch display, with a Quad HD resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate which is also available on the Razer Phone.

While functionality was very limited, we were able to experience using the Razer Phone as the touchpad.

At CES 2018, Razer showed off Project Linda that pairs perfectly with the latest Razer Phone. Razer is playing to the phone strengths (the speakers), much in the same way that other smartphone brands are partnering with well-known companies on their strengths (Huawei with Leica). Don't get too excited, it is not a commercial product yet, Razer is unveiling it as a concept.

By default, the Razer Phone's touchscreen acts as a trackpad but if you connect a wireless mouse it becomes a second screen, used for menu information or extra stats in certain games and apps.

Placing the Razer Phone into Project Linda is pretty simple. It features a full-size keyboard with Chroma backlighting for personalization.

An HDR-10 enabled display and Dobly-optimized speakers are only a small part of what the Razer Phone can do.

So what makes Project Linda different? Hit up the project's official web page for more information. Now Razer did mention that if you put the Phone in backwards and try to dock it, Project Linda will still push out the USB-C port.

Connectivity on Project Linda includes a 3.5mm audio jack, USB-A port and a USB-C charging port. With this in mind, it should come as no surprise to learn that Razer is looking to do even more with the device.
