  • Project Linda allows users to play the same Android games they play on the smartphone on a bigger 13.3-inch Quad HD screen

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.

While the concept of a smartphone laptop dock has been around for a while, new life was recently breathed into the idea with the release of the Samsung DeX system. However, unlike similar dock concepts, Project Linda turns the phone into an interactive touch pad. The Razer Phone docks easily into Project Linda and connects with a simple key press, seamlessly integrating the devices.

Yes, the Project Linda is powered by Razer Phone.

"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".

Despite its novelty, there are two glaring issues with Project Linda. Additionally, it comes with the Razer Chroma backlighting for low-light situations and can also be personalized with millions of colour options.

Designed for mobility, the 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.

The Astros would hope that Cole bounces back to his form from 2013-2016 when he had a 3.23 ERA over 579 1/3 innings of work. Passan did note that "generally, this sort of thing winds up with a deal being consummated".


The laptop shell doesn't have the standard internals of a laptop, instead being mostly a case for a 1080p display, 53.6 Whr battery, and a hard drive to extend the phone's storage. Inside the laptop is 200 GB of storage, allowing for offline backups and additional local media and app storage.

Project Linda bridges the gap between handheld entertainment and laptop convenience.

Razer, a brand known for making top-of-the-line products for gaming, has announced Project Linda, along with the HyperFlux technology. Razer Phone is to be for mobile gamers what Razer PCs are for PC gamers.

Perhaps the nicest surprise of the hybrid setup is the user interface, which seems inspired by Windows from a functionality standpoint in such a way that it boosts productivity but shouldn't attract a lawsuit. Yes, that company which makes some cool gaming laptops, keyboards, mice and other gaming peripherals.

Razer services include Razer zGold, one of the world's largest virtual credit services for gamers, which allows gamers to purchase virtual goods and items from over 2,500 different games.
