Every year at CES, Razer tries to come up with something new and intriguing in their grasp. A year ago, the gaming company grabbed the attention at the CES by showcasing Project Valerie, which was a crazy laptop combined with 3 screens and again this year at CES 2018, the Razer uncovered a concept called ‘Project Linda’. To put it simply, the Project Linda is a laptop powered by the Android-based Razer Phone. It’s an Android-powered laptop!
It is a laptop which heartbeat comes from a smartphone.
The innovation behind this Project Linda is basically a laptop shell that allows users to merge their phone with a laptop. The Razer phone is docked into a particular slot and once it is connected to the laptop, the display of the phone becomes a touchpad and can also be used as a second screen.
The laptop has a 13.3-inch Quad HD(2560×1440) LCD display, chroma backlighting keyboard, two USB ports, 200GB of storage, a 3.5mm headphone jack and an internal 53.6Whr battery that can fully charge the phone up to four times. However, the laptop is missing inbuilt speakers but there is nothing to worry about as the speakers on razer phone can easily fill a room with its loud sound.

Of course, there were many companies who tried to turn a smartphone into a laptop, yet they didn’t really succeed. But I think Razer is the only company out there who did it pretty well.
Since Project Linda is just a concept product, there is no word on a potential price or release date, so don’t get too excited.
