The device is essentially a 13.3-inch laptop that somewhat follows Nintendo's playbook with the Switch dock; instead of a tablet, users dock their Razer Phone into the Project Linda laptop for Android-powered gaming.
Razer announced Tuesday that it has partnered with Netflix to allow owners of its flagship smartphone, the Razer Phone, to stream their favorite TV shows in HDR and Dolby Digital Plus 5.1. Docked where you'd typically find a trackpad, the Razer Phone functions as a touchpad and an interactive second display. Otherwise, it's pretty much totally dependent on the Razer Phone, which itself is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and 8GB of RAM. When the phone has been docked, you can start using the display as a touchpad, which is a great feature and because the display size is already big, the trackpad area can be equivalent to a 2016 or 2017 MacBook Pro notebook's overly sized trackpad.
Based on the Razer Blade Stealth, Project Linda is indistinguishable from the company's other high-end Windows laptops. This way you'll be able to use a mouse with your phone, which actually worked quite well in our demo, and would probably help you get ahead in all your competitive mobile games. In fact, the core of Project Linda is actually the Razer Phone that the company released past year and merged it into a laptop shell. The 13.3-inch Quad HD touchscreen offers the same 120 Hz experience as Razer Phone.
The Project Linda dock has a 53.6Wh battery, capable of fast-charging the phone up to 3 times.
I for one can't help but feel like this project is a bit of extra justification for the Razor phone's shortcomings and existence. "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".
As with many of Razer's CES reveals over the years, this is a prototype for the time being and may not make it to the market. The company isn't slowing down as it has unveiled another piece of awesome hardware.
