Netflix is coming to the Razer Phone-in HDR

Razer won't go into specifics around Project Linda's internals, but we do know it has enough battery to fully charge the Razer Phone three times over, and should last you almost all day if used like a laptop.

As CES 2018 kicks off into full gear, Razer has revealed their Project Linda concept which aims to bring their gaming lap tops and phones together for the ultimate portable game experience.

As with other Razer concepts, theres no certainty that Project Linda will ever get a consumer release. And the Razer Phone's 120Hz refresh rate translates to smooth visuals on the larger 13.3-inch laptop's display as well. Users can dock their Razer Android device inside the laptop chassis where a touchpad would normally reside and connects to the device with a single button. Say hello to Project Linda, a prototype created to turn the Razer Phone into a full-fledged Android notebook. Now Razer did mention that if you put the Phone in backwards and try to dock it, Project Linda will still push out the USB-C port. "The 5.7" touchscreen of the Razer Phone can function as a touchpad, or as an interactive second touch display for custom interfaces or additional apps. The notebook doesn't have any speakers, instead relying on the front-firing speakers of the Razer Phone.

What do you think of Razer's Project Linda laptop/phone hybrid? We were told that the Linda UI was being built based on CentOS which means that plugging the Razer Phone in launches a full desktop experience.

The most interesting aspect of Project Linda is how it puts the Razer Phone to use.

Most apps run in tablet mode and will certainly take some optimizing but the main goal of Project Linda is to extend the gaming aspect from the phone to a bigger screen. It also has 200GB storage for saving games, content, etc. Razer has included a 3.5-mm audio jack, a USB-A port, a USB-C charging port, 720p webcam, and a dual-array microphone on this device. With this in mind, it should come as no surprise to learn that Razer is looking to do even more with the device.
