Razer wants your phone to be your laptop

Razer wants your phone to be your laptop

I was more than impressed when Razer revealed its new smartphone. Granted, it wasn’t the toaster that many have long pleaded for. But, it was a powerhouse of a phone nonetheless.

During the Consumer Electronic Showcase (CES), the company built “For Gamers. By Gamers.” revealed yet another milestone for its hardware. Razer introduced Project Linda, a 13.3″ laptop that is meant to house your Razer smartphone.

Android power users and laptop enthusiasts share a need for performance in a mobile form factor, which we provide with our award-winning Razer Phone and Razer laptops,” says Razer co-founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan. “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.

Much like many other Razer products, the laptop will get full Chroma support, providing millions of customizable color options. You can also utilize your phone as a touchpad along with having a mouse as an input device. Although, it is noted at this point that the announcement is a concept build at this time.

Here are some of the specs you can expect from the hardy-hyrbid:

  • 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.
  • A 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.
  • 200 GB of storage, allowing for offline backups and additional local media and app storage.
  • 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.
