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. But Razer's Project Linda might be another effort worth taking a look at.

Linda has a 13.3” screen with QHD resolution, 120Hz refresh rate and HDR support, similar to the phones own screen. Essentially, it's a dock that runs the phone itself into 13.3 inch Android gaming computer, which is kind of a neat concept for those gamers constantly on the go.

"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", Razer chief executive officer Min-Liang Tan said in a statement. Razer is playing to the phone strengths (the speakers), much in the same way that other smartphone brands are partnering with well-known companies on their strengths (Huawei with Leica).

Placing the Razer Phone into Project Linda is pretty simple. Once plugged in, the phone's display transfers to the laptop's 4K 120 Mhz touchscreen display, with the smaller screen acting as either a touchpad or a secondary display.

Project Linda is basically the shell of the Blade Stealth, so it's very lightweight and thin, although it is about half an inch thicker than the Blade Stealth.

Currently, Razer does not have a planned launch date for Project Linda, and that is because it is a prototype, so it's still far off from launching or being available. that means there's also no pricing available.

Razer has announced a new software update will begin rolling out later this month to the Razer Phone that will let users take full advantage of the media-consuming technology onboard.

The aluminium body of the Razer Project Linda has 200gb of storage, a 3.5mm audio jack, USB port, USBC port, 720p webcam and double mics. With this in mind, it should come as no surprise to learn that Razer is looking to do even more with the device.
