Razer's 'Project Linda' turns your phone into a gorgeous laptop

Razer's 'Project Linda' turns your phone into a gorgeous laptop

We have the phone an 8/10 score, which is pretty darn impressive for a first stab.

A battery pack of 53.6Wh installed in the laptop shell can recharge the Razer Phone up to three times over while away from AC power.

Razer is not the first to dream up a phone dock for a laptop.

As this is still very much a proof of concept, there wasn't much that could be used or tested on the Project Linda hardware. This way you'll be able to use a mouse with your phone, which actually worked quite well in our demo, and would probably help you get ahead in all your competitive mobile games.

Designed for mobility, the unibody CNC aluminium chassis of Razer Project Linda is just 0.59-inch (15 mm) thin and weighs three pounds (1.25 kg) including the docked phone.

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

The idea of smartphone-powered laptop is nothing new as there were so many such implementations over the years. The 13.3-inch display is a Quad HD touchscreen with 120 Hz refresh rate. Making its debut through the event this week, the company has brought forward a brand-new concept laptop called Project Linda.

Based on the Razer Blade Stealth, Project Linda is indistinguishable from the company's other high-end Windows laptops. Because of this, you could log into the Project Linda laptop using your fingerprint. On the audio side of things, the two front-facing stereo speakers are some of the best you can find on a phone right now. This is the Razer Project Linda, a laptop (or notebook, whatever you prefer, ) made to house the Razer Phone. Razer's current prototype is created to fit the company's own smartphone, but since it connects via USB-C, Project Linda could eventually work with any phone that uses such a port, theoretically speaking. For now Razer is gathering fan feedback, but we wouldnt get too attached – juts take Linda for what it is, a cool-looking concept.

Those who already have their Razer Phones will receive an over-the-air update later this month to give them firmware improvements and such, as well as the app itself if you didn't have it yet.
