Companies have been trying to transform phone into a laptop for years only to fail miserably. Until now! Razer’s Project Linda (which was showcased at CES 2018) are finally here, could arrive this September along with the Razer Phone 2.
Razer is a famous gaming hardware company, Razer’s products are generally targeted at gamers, and include gaming laptops, gaming tablets, PC, keyboard, mouse, mouse pad, headset and more.
Razer got everyones attention at 15 November 2017 with the surprise launch of its first smartphone (Razor phone). The device is designed mainly for gamers, but it is also good enough for everyday use. Razer Phone turned out to be very successfully which I am very glad for! But I am keep asking myself how many gamers would actually prefare to play on their phone then sitting with their laptop/PC? And that is how I think ”Project Linda” is coming into the picture. This concept will combine Razer Phone with a laptop dock with both devices working together to provide an enhanced user experience. So you will get a 13.3-inch laptop with full-sized keyboard.
To connect Razer phone with laptop you will put phone into the space where there would normally be a trackpad, and you’ve now got a 13.3-inch screen supporting touch input laptop with full-sized Chroma-lit keyboard. And a 2,560 x 1,440 resolution at 120Hz. The screen and keyboard are packed into a CNC aluminum chassis measuring just 0.59 inch thin. The Razer Phone is intended to function as a trackpad, or as an interactive second touch displays for custom interface or additional apps. The Razer Phone is intended to function as a trackpad, speaker system and second screen for its laptop dock, while the laptop can project Android apps from the phone to its 13.3-inch screen and can charge the handset while it’s docked. Keyboard is tricked out with the company’s signature Chroma keyboard with illumination platform. So you can customize the keys to different colors or have it play different effects like spectrum and ripple, which display a flashing effect and rainbow colors. 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 features a built-in power bank that quickly charges the Razer Phone while docked. Take advantage of the second display for easy access to menus, maps, and more while in game. The only ports you’ll find is a single headphone jack, a USB-A 3.1 Gen1 port of the right, and a USB-C 3.1 Gen1 port on the left that’s also used for charging. Project Linda comes with 200GB of storage, and a built-in power bank that charges the phone while it is docked.
