Every year at CES PC maker Razer show up with some cool new prototype piece of hardware. And this year at CES 2018, the company is showing off Project Linda, a companion piece of hardware for the recently released Razer Phone that extends the smartphone into a full laptop.
Razer is trying to make the Razer Phone look more appealing to buyers. At the CES 2018 in Las Vegas, Razer showcased a laptop dock with a 13-inch screen, called Project Linda that extends the smartphone into a full laptop.
It is a 13.3-inch laptop without a touchpad.The laptop doesn’t come with a touchpad as it houses a dock for the Razer Phone.
In Project Linda, a laptop docks the Razer Phone on its body, in the area where a touchpad is usually placed. It connects with the press of a button and instantly transforms Project Linda into an Android laptop.
Unlike the Asus convertibles which also provided the option to run Windows OS separately, Project Linda works by opening the same Android 7.1 interface in landscape mode.
The Project Linda features a 13.3-inch Quad HD(2560 x 1440 pixels) touchscreen with 120Hz refresh rate and equips a 53.6 Wh internal battery, which simultaneously charges the docked smartphone. The laptop sports 200GB of internal storage and comes with connectivity options like a 3.5-mm audio jack, a USB-A port, a USB-C charging port, a 720p webcam, and a dual-array microphone.
It comes with a full-size backlit keyboard, which is powered by Razer Chroma. It sports dedicated keys for back, home, switch apps, voice search and more.
