If you’ve ever dreamed of quickly converting your phone to a bigger screen with a full size keyboard, Razer Project Linda is the the tech product you’re going to spend the rest of the year lusting after.
The Razer Phone docks inside the shell of a Razer notebook and becomes the trackpad while still delivering great sound and morphing into a specialized touchscreen for some games and photo editing apps.
Project Linda is a concept, so there is no specific release date or price. We’ve seen similar ideas in the past, but this is one of the most well rounded, and powerful versions to date.
Unlike Samsung’s DEX system, you don’t need to plug into a monitor or carry a keyboard and mouse. It’s all built in to Razer Project Linda, including a bigger battery and added storage.
The Razer Phone’s Snapdragon processor and 8GB of RAM power the system and the 5.7-inch phone screen acts as a touchpad or a second display. You can also connect an external keyboard and mouse.
“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 full size keyboard includes Razer Chroma so you get the epic gaming looks that you’re used to on Razer gear. Project Linda has is 15mm thick, weighs under three pounds and includes a 13.3-inch Quad HD touchscreen. The laptop portion has 200GB of storage, USB C, USB A and a 3.5mm headphone jack as well as a webcam.
