CES 2018: A Closer Look at Razer's New Laptop Powered by Smartphone

CES 2018: A Closer Look at Razer's New Laptop Powered by Smartphone

The Razer phone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor paired with 8GB of RAM. Since the phone naturally has a screen, the touchpad also becomes a second display for anything; I could imagine it showing wallpaper or even a file browser when summoned.

To give you an idea of size, the laptop is similar in dimensions to the Razer Blade Stealth 13 inch. Unfortunately, Razer has said that Project Linda is only a prototype so there is a possibility that the device is not going to be manufactured on a large scale for the public to use. As of now, it is unclear when Project Linda will hit the market.

Further, like any other laptop, it comes with a full-size built-in keyboard which is customized for the Android environment with dedicated keys for navigation, searches and app selection. The Razer Chroma™ backlighting is ideal for low-light situations and can also be personalized with millions of color options. The Project Linda laptop has a dock for the Razer Phone below the keyboard (in place of the trackpad). Other than that, I think there are two problems with Project Linda: 1. the software experience is buggy and messy, and though somewhat interesting, it failed to impress us, and 2. you need a Razer Phone to use this. Razer Phone is to be for mobile gamers what Razer PCs are for PC gamers.

Project Linda also has 200GB of storage where a user can put backups or additional media.




In terms of connectivity, Project Linda features one USB-A port, one USB-C charging port, and of course, a 3.5 mm headphone jack. Personally, I am interested to see the final product; until then, check out a few screenshots of Project Linda below. 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.

Razer™ is the world's leading lifestyle brand for gamers. Razer is likely still tinkering around with the concept to get it right, with plans to commence a commercial production perhaps being somewhere in the near future.

Another perk of having the Razer phone on hand is that you'll be getting the superior sound quality that the phone has to offer, seeing as its speakers point up. This technology includes a mouse and a compatible mouse pad so that users do not have to charge the wireless mouse separately.

Razer has a very good reputation among the gaming community and its die-hard fans.
