"We engineered the Razer Phone to handle HDR video and sound like no other phone on the market", says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO.

The Project Linda dock has a 53.6Wh battery, capable of fast-charging the phone up to 3 times.

However, it is not a traditional gaming laptop despite having the same design language as per the company's Blade gaming laptops.

For right now, Project Linda is just that - a project, with no price or intended release date. Take Project Linda from Razer, for example, a laptop concept where the brains and control system are provided by the company's flagship smartphone, and also serves as the trackpad. You have to think about your computing loadout: for many, that consists of a smartphone and a laptop.

Sleeping woman sexually assaulted on Spirit flight to Detroit: complaint
Ramamoorthy's wife had at this point walked up to the back of the plane to inquire into the incident, the attendants added. When the flight landed at Detroit Metro Airport, Ramamoorthy was taken into custody by Wayne County Airport Authority.

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. The 13.3-inch display is a Quad HD touchscreen with 120 Hz refresh rate. Users can dock their Razer Android device inside the laptop chassis where a touchpad would normally reside and connects to the device with a single button.

The Razer Phone, created by a lifestyle brand for gamers, comes with an HDR10-enabled display as well as front-facing dual Dolby-optimized speakers, and if you prefer to use headphones with it, it also supports THX connectivity. This is the interface that powers the laptop - in fact, the only thing Project Linda offers up hardware wise is some extra battery and extra storage. Razer's current prototype is created to fit the company's own smartphone, but since it connects via USB-C, Project Linda could eventually work with any phone that uses such a port, theoretically speaking. Still, a full keyboard a bigger screen are really nice, and Razer is looking to mix two of their most popular products together to make that happen. If not, does this news make you more tempted by one?

We always ask about pricing when we see new products, and Razer's answers are nearly invariably unsatisfying-either "we don't know yet" or a number that's eyebrow-raisingly high.

You can register on the Razer site to receive updates and announcements related to the project.
