Razer's Project Linda wants to close the gap between laptops and smartphones

That's not all since Project Linda will differentiate itself from other smartphone docks by offering 2 key features: an internal battery and 200GB of storage space. With this in mind, it should come as no surprise to learn that Razer is looking to do even more with the device.

A built-in keyboard gives the phone's system ease in typing, as well as navigation, app selection, and searching the web.

Whether customers agree or not remains to be seen, if and when Project Linda becomes a shipping product.

Being the first device that officially supports both premium HDR10 and 5.1 Dolby Digital Plus, the Razer Phone will be given access to a special version of the Android Netflix app that enables users to enjoy the full scope of the two audio and video formats on their devices. This is because the phone can also be utilized as a touchpad or a second display for apps, tools, and other usages while being docked into Project Linda's laptop shell.

Razer has revealed a very odd mix of laptop and mobile phone hardware in a bid to utilize its new Razer Phone.

Razer won't go into specifics around Project Linda's internals, but we do know it has enough battery to fully charge the Razer Phone three times over, and should last you almost all day if used like a laptop.

Cleverly, when docked, the Razer Phone works as the laptop's touchpad as it slides into the front of the keyboard. Although it's a lot more powerful than the Atrix was, powered by an eight-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and 8GB of RAM, the phone isn't only used to power Project Linda; it's also a fundamental part of a clever dual-screen design. The normal laptop ports like a webcam, USB type-C and type-A ports, and a headphone jack are also available.

For now this is just a prototype, so there's no guarantee it'll ever go on sale, but Razer seems upbeat about Project Linda's prospects.
