Razer wants to power a laptop with its Razer Phone

We were told that the Linda UI was being built based on CentOS which means that plugging the Razer Phone in launches a full desktop experience.

This week we're taking a look at the Razer Phone taken to a new universe. What do you guys think of Project Linda? . You can also connect a mouse if you want a little more control.

Unfortunately, this is just a project within the Razer labs right now and there isn't any word on when or if this device will see the light of day as a real product consumers can buy. There's no speakers in the laptop dock, instead the dual front-firing speakers of the phone will provide the required audio experience.

The idea of smartphone-powered laptop is nothing new as there were so many such implementations over the years. Its 13.3-inch Quad HD touchscreen extends the 120 Hz experience available on the Razer Phone to a larger display, providing fluid motion and vibrant visuals. Alternatively, when docked, you can use the Razer Phone as a trackpad, rather than a second screen. Although it's true that the four Project Lindas Razer had on hand in its suite this year are indeed prototypes, they were all functioning, at least to an extent. Having spent many trade shows with my laptop tethered to my my phone's mobile connection due to shoddy Wi-Fi, I can certainly see the appeal. Making its debut through the event this week, the company has brought forward a brand-new concept laptop called Project Linda. The laptop also contains a 53 Wh battery that Razer claims can charge the phone up to three times, an additional 200 GB of storage, a single USB Type-C charging port, a USB 3.0 Type-A port, and a headphone jack. Razer Phone owners drop their device into the slot in front of the keyboard and link the two devices together by pressing a button key on the keyboard.

When docked, the interface switches to a more traditional laptop-style one, complete with a taskbar.

Of course, before you get too excited, like nearly all of Razer's imaginative concepts, there's not even a hint of when this might be available to buy, or for how much.

Existing Razer Phone users will also benefit from the Netflix and Razer partnership with an over-the-air update later this month.
