Razer's Project Linda is an insane laptop/Razer phone hybrid

Razer's Project Linda is an insane laptop/Razer phone hybrid

Oh, and the handset would be rapidly charged while powering Linda by a 53.6 Wh battery built into the 15 mm thin laptop body weighing a measly 1.25 kg (less than three pounds) with the phone included. Many companies have tried this before - extending your smartphone to a larger screen laptop/desktop - but so far it is Razer's approach that looks really clever, and from videos of people at CES, works flawless. Users benefit from a responsive and comfortable typing experience, customized for the Android environment with dedicated keys for navigation, search and app selection. So you slide in your smartphone and boot the laptop up to get this laptop running directly from the smartphone with it acting as they extra large touchpad. The Razer Phone runs on Android 7.1 "Nougat", with full access to the Google Play Store and available apps. The docked phone serves as an intelligent touchpad, bridging the gap between handheld entertainment and laptop convenience. 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 concept is similar to the Windows Dock or the Samsung DeX Station, but rather than dock to a desktop PC, Project Linda seamlessly docks the phone right into the laptop.

The quad HD touch display on Project Linda is an extension of the Razer Phone-it boasts the same 120Hz refresh rate. Also, with 200GB of internal storage, Project Linda can house local apps, games, media, and offline phone backups.

Cleverly, when docked, the Razer Phone works as the laptop's touchpad as it slides into the front of the keyboard.

Project Linda also has Razer's iconic Chroma backlighting for the keybard, an audio jack, a USB port and a USB Type-C charging port.
