Razer Project Linda Puts Phone Inside Laptop

Razer Phone becomes both a touchpad and CPU for laptop productivity or gaming

At CES 2018, Razer unveiled Project Linda, a 13.3-inch laptop chassis with dock for Razer Phone in the typical location for a touchpad. The Phone serves as the CPU, hard drive, touchpad and Android operating system. The laptop portion includes an extra hard drive and battery. The whole system is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 mobile platform and 8 GB of RAM deliver from the phone. Together it becomes an Android laptop. The Razer Phone 5.7-inch display can be used as a touchpad, or as a second screen for access to apps, tools, and more.

A full-size, built-in keyboard adds to the capabilities of Project Linda, providing enhanced productivity and differentiated gaming experiences. Users benefit from a responsive and comfortable typing experience, customized for the Android environment with dedicated keys for navigation, search and app selection. The Razer Chroma backlighting is ideal for low-light situations and can also be personalized with millions of color options. A user may complete the laptop input experience by using the docked phone as a touchpad, or a mouse may be connected for precision control in games and apps.

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

The concept also features a 53.6 Wh internal battery that can rapidly charge the docked phone to full capacity over three times while away from AC power. Inside the laptop is 200 GB of storage, allowing for offline backups and additional local media and app storage. Connectivity afforded via Project Linda includes a built in 3.5-millimeter audio jack, a USB-A port, a USB-C charging port, 720p webcam, and a dual-array microphone, giving a range of options for communication and external devices.

Project Linda bridges the gap between handheld entertainment and laptop convenience. The Razer Phone’s performance, display, and dual front-firing speakers combine seamlessly with Project Linda’s larger screen, keyboard, and battery to provide the ultimate mobile hybrid setup for gaming, creativity, and productivity.

“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,” says Razer co-founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan.
