Razer's Project Linda is a prototype laptop shell for the Razer Phone

Project Linda is essentially a 13.3-inch laptop shell with a dock for the Razer Phone. Instead, there is a space where the Razer Phone can be docked, allowing the 5.7-inch screen to be used as a touchpad or as a second screen for games or work.

Tan also explained that the Netflix app will allow the company to "take full measure of the Razer Phone's HDR10-enabled display and dual-firing, front-facing Dolby-optimized speakers and THX-certified headphone connectivity".

The laptop body doesn't have any of its own processing power, but it does feature a 200 GB storage drive, a 720p webcam, its own microphone, and an extended battery (with a 53.6 watt-hour capacity). The phone acts as the 3-pound computer's brain, which is fine because it has a fast Snapdragon 835 processor and 8GB of RAM inside. Ideal for both quick text entries and lengthy typing sessions, and complete with custom Android keys for navigation, app selection, searching, and more.

That said, Razer's intent is to provide "enhanced productivity and differentiated gaming experiences" with Project Linda.

Project Linda is a prototype and there is no mention it getting released for sale anytiime soon.

The Razer Phone is a speedy little device for productivity use cases, but having the option to plug it into a hybrid with a big battery and a full keyboard and mouse support could make it something that replaces that Chromebook in your backpack.

Project Linda is only in the conceptual stage at the moment, something for Razer to show off at CES 2018 in hopes of scoring another Best Of award. More than 4,000 companies compete for accolades at CES, the world's most prestigious tech tradeshow.

Now that you know how Project Linda looks, do you think it's an interesting concept?

The device has a 13-inch QHD touch display with a similar design to the Razer Blade Stealth.
