razer project linda CES

  • A new rumor suggests Razer’s “Project Linda” concept, which was showcased at CES 2018, may be announced as an official product in September with a second-generation model of the Razer Phone.
  • The concept combines the Razer Phone with a laptop dock with both devices working together to provide an enhanced user experience.
  • Razer’s CEO has hinted that Project Linda may be in development for release.

“Project Linda,” the smartphone-computer concept that wowed audiences at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) earlier this month, may be a market reality by September.

Project Linda comes from the gaming company Razer. It combines the company’s Razer Phone, a mobile device with high-refresh rate display and a gargantuan battery, with a laptop dock. Razer expects such a device combination will be the go-to electronics product of the future.

A recent report by the French blog Frandroid claims Razer may release a Razer Phone 2 update model as part of Project Linda later in 2018. GSM Arena noted a September release could align with the IFA conference, where many companies announce and showcase products typically released in the latter part of the year.

While details about a Razer Phone 2 and Project Linda launch are not confirmed, Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan recently hinted on Twitter (in a response to popular tech YouTuber Marques Brownlee) that there may be some advancement in the product’s development.

Well I could do something about that I think….

With regards to Project Linda, the Razer Phone is intended to function as a trackpad, speaker system and second screen for its laptop dock, while the laptop can project Android apps from the phone to its 13.3-inch screen and can charge the handset while it’s docked.
