Razer's Project Linda is a Razer Phone-powered 13-inch laptop hybrid

At the moment, in the early prototype stage, it simply mirrors what's being shown on the display, but it's clear Razer sees a lot of potential in further exploring the idea of a phone-powered laptop. There is 200GB of storage space inside the laptop, plus a 53.6Wh battery that not only drives the screen and keyboard, but can charge a docked Razer Phone over three times without connection to a power supply.

Project Linda is only in the conceptual stage at the moment, something for Razer to show off at CES 2018 in hopes of scoring another Best Of award. The Razer Phone, launched a few weeks ago as a device for gamers with a 120 Hz IGZO display and focused on content consumption with loud front facing speakers, is now the recommended premium device that Netflix suggests to watch Netflix content on.

Razer hopes that Project Linda will be a new era for mobile computing, blending the familiar Android environment with the ease of use of a laptop. The company's product page explains the Razer Phone is also powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 mobile processor.

The way it works is that the Razer Phone docks in face-up position where the touchpad would normally be found. But Razer's take on this concept has the potential ot be more mobile and useful. So you can plug things in and use them with Project Linda.

Placing the Razer Phone into Project Linda is pretty simple.

The slot, which has a retractable USB-C plug on one of its sides, is form-fitted for the Razer Phone and had a soft material to avoid any scratches. Underneath the phone, there is a nice padded area to keep the Razer Phone from getting scratched when docked in place. According to media tests, the display has an average brightness of around 310 nits (lower than most high-end smartphones), which would suggest aiming for the HDR300 standard, although it is still an 8-bit display. This is because, this comes with a screen, keyboard and basically a full laptop experience, where as solutions like Samsung Dex is just a dock, and you still need to supply the monitor/display, keyboard and mouse.
