Project Linda is essentially a 13.3-inch laptop shell with a dock for the Razer Phone. But because it's only using the phone, there is no processing power specifically for the laptop. "Project Linda combines the best of both worlds, bringing a larger screen and physical keyboard to the Android environment, enhancing the experience for gaming and productivity". The phone's Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 835 mobile platform and 8 GB of RAM deliver responsive performance, instantly transforming Project Linda into an Android laptop.
The way it works is that the Razer Phone docks in face-up position where the touchpad would normally be found.
A built-in keyboard gives the phone's system ease in typing, as well as navigation, app selection, and searching the web. Having spent many trade shows with my laptop tethered to my my phone's mobile connection due to shoddy Wi-Fi, I can certainly see the appeal.
If you had Razer's Project Linda, you wouldn't need to install an emulator on your laptop to play Clash of Clans on a bigger display or sync your files across devices. Once plugged in, the phone's display transfers to the laptop's 4K 120 Mhz touchscreen display, with the smaller screen acting as either a touchpad or a secondary display.
Razer says it could be the "ultimate mobile hybrid setup for gaming, creativity, and productivity".
The aluminium body of the Razer Project Linda has 200gb of storage, a 3.5mm audio jack, USB port, USBC port, 720p webcam and double mics.
Razer revealed Project Linda at the Consumer Electronics Show this week.
