Netflix is coming to the Razer Phone-in HDR

This year we saw Project Ariana (an immersive video projection system) and now Project Linda – a laptop dock for the Razer Phone.

The laptop will seamlessly dock the Razer Phone inside the chassis (where you'd normally find the touchpad) and will use the phones 8gb of RAM to run the computer. The 5.7-inch glass display on the Razer Phone becomes the combined device's trackpad and its front-facing Dolby speakers provide sound. And, as with any laptop, a mouse can be connected as a peripheral for more precise control, particularly if the phone needs to be used as a second screen.

Razer has revealed a very unusual mix of laptop and mobile phone hardware in a bid to utilize its new Razer Phone. In fact, the core of Project Linda is actually the Razer Phone that the company released a year ago and merged it into a laptop shell.

"The 13.3" Quad HD touchscreen extends the 120Hz experience available on the Razer Phone to a larger display, providing fluid motion and vibrant visuals. It has enough power to charge the phone three times over (essentially allowing the laptop to power). What do you guys think of Project Linda? .

We're accustomed to Razer's annual fun, brash CES prototypes turn into vaporware, and sometimes what the company shows us are barely functioning prototypes.

But on the specs side, things are far more sparse, because this laptop is powered by the Razer Phone, a 6-inch Android device that's powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset.

The aluminium body of the Razer Project Linda has 200gb of storage, a 3.5mm audio jack, USB port, USBC port, 720p webcam and double mics.

A full-size, built-in keyboard adds to the capabilities of Project Linda, providing enhanced productivity and differentiated gaming experiences.

Existing Razer Phone users will also benefit from the Netflix and Razer partnership with an over-the-air update later this month. With a fan base that spans every continent, the company has designed and built the world's largest gamer-focused ecosystem of hardware, software and services. Razer is listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange (Stock Code: 1337).
