Razer's Project Linda lifts a phone to laptop level

13 January 2018

Project Linda is a laptop powered by Razer Phone.

Well, there hasn't been a better time to try than in this day and age, when 8GB RAM is about to become the mobile industry standard, and the Snapdragon 835 processor is already powering "always-connected" Windows 10 S notebooks.

It's worth noting that Razer's hybrid laptop-phone concept is hardly the first of its kind, with both Motorola's Atrix and Asus' PadFone delivering similar concepts, neither of which were all that successful.

Le'Veon Bell unsure about Steelers future
If Bell did sit out 2018 if he's tagged again, he'd be turning down a deal that far surpasses what any other back will be getting. With a strong chance at Super Bowl number seven, Pittsburgh's only focus is the game ahead and their road to a ring.

The Razer Project Linda concept is an ultraportable laptop, powered by a docked Razer Android smartphone that also serves as the touchpad. However, it could be a good fit for the on-the-go professional who occasionally needs a laptop form factor.

Further, like any other laptop, it comes with a full-size built-in keyboard which is customized for the Android environment with dedicated keys for navigation, searches and app selection. Its 13.3-inch Quad HD touchscreen extends the 120 Hz experience available on the Razer Phone to a larger display, providing fluid motion and vibrant visuals. Project Linda comes with unibody CNC aluminum chassis and weighs 1.25 kg with the phone docked.

Razer recently released a list of games that support the Razer Phone's 120Hz display. Inside the laptop is 200 GB of storage, allowing for offline backups and additional local media and app storage. The laptop looks nearly identical to Razer's Blade brand of gaming laptops, except for a smartphone-shaped well where a laptop's trackpad typically sits. However, the Project Linda laptop is still in the prototype stage, and it could take a while to be launched as a final product.

Manchester police looking for convenience store armed robbery suspect
Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact the Salisbury Barrack at 410-749-3101. Authorities say the clerk was the only person in the store at the time of the robbery.

In terms of connectivity, Project Linda features one USB-A port, one USB-C charging port, and of course, a 3.5 mm headphone jack.

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). It still requires the carrying of, essentially, two separate devices, and doesn't necessarily bring equitable power or performance of a second standalone laptop.
