Razer Project Linda turns your Razer Phone into an Android laptop

It has enough power to charge the phone three times over (essentially allowing the laptop to power).

The brains of Project Linda is the Razer Phone, which already has some of the best specs on the market right now. 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. You'll also find 200GB of extra storage which Razer sees as either being used as an offline backup of your phone's memory, or as a way to offload larger video and image files, or for apps that only need to be used with the phone docked. Drop your phone into the space where the touchpad is normally located, hit the dock button on Project Linda's keyboard and, voila, you have an Android-powered laptop ready for light productivity and gaming on the go. When you connect the two devices, the phone powers a 13.3-inch screen, a full-sized keyboard, and the option to plug in external devices like a mouse. You'll also be able to use the phone as either a touchpad or a second screen.

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. 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. There's also a 720p webcam and dual-array microphone embedded just above the Full HD display, while audio comes direct from the Razer Phone's impressive speakers. This is a concept still, but we did get a chance to check out the prototype with Razer this week at CES.

With a full sized keyboard in place, users will benefit from a more responsive and faster typing experience. What do you guys think of Project Linda? .

The most interesting aspect of Project Linda is how it puts the Razer Phone to use. With this in mind, it should come as no surprise to learn that Razer is looking to do even more with the device.
