Razer Project Linda is the message to all those PC makers showing how to build a laptop dock for a smartphone. The Project Lynda laptop dock comes with a 13.3″ screen and comes to life when the Razer Phone is docked inside its chassis where a touchpad would normally reside and connects with the press of a button. The best part is that the phone acts as a trackpad, a huge trackpad.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 is a highly capable chip and we feel that the Razer Project Linda can be powerful enough as a laptop for day to day work. The dock comes with a 2K resolution display and given that the Razer Phone too has a similar resolution display, it won’t be a problem for the phone to power the display. The phone can be used as a touchpad or as a second screen for quick access to app and tools.
“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,” says Razer co-founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan. “Project Linda combines the best of both worlds, bringing a larger screen and physical keyboard to the Android environment, enhancing the experience for gaming and productivity.”
The chassis of Razer Project Linda is made using unibody aluminium and is only 15mm thick. When docked, the laptop weighs under 1.25kgs. The QuadHD display has a 120Hz refresh rate, there is a 53.6Wh internal battery that can also charge the phone. Razer has included a 200GB storage so that users can store data in the dock and can also use for offline backup of the phone. Coming to ports, there is a USB-A port, USB-C port, 720p webcam, 3.5mm headphone jack. The keyboard is full size backlit RGB keyboard that supports Razer Chroma backlighting.
