Providing the best of both words.
Razer has unveiled a new laptop/smartphone hybrid concept called Project Linda.
The device, powered by the Android-based Razer Phone—which won IGN’s Best Smartphone of 2017—features a 13.3-inch laptop design. With Project Linda, Razer aims to provide an experience that blends “the familiar Android environment with the ease-of-use of a laptop.”
Project Linda has you dock the Razer Phone inside the laptop’s frame, where a touchpad typically would be located. With the press of a button, the phone is transformed into an Android laptop, with the phone’s 5.7-inch display able to function as a touchpad or second screen. A mouse can also be connected for more precise control.
In addition, Project Linda features a full-size keyboard with Razer Chroma backlighting, a 13.3-inch Quad HD touchscreen, and a 53.6 Wh internal battery that charges the phone while docked. Inside its aluminum chassis, which is 15mm thin and weighs less than three pounds including the phone, is 200 GB of storage. It also features a 720p webcam, a dual-array microphone, a 3.5-millimeter audio jack, a USB-A port, and a USB-C charging port.
