Your Razer phone can now be your PC.

You may have already heard about Razer’s supersized gaming smartphone. It got great feedback especially with the introduction of the 120 Hz display that’s a first on a mobile device.

But Razer is taking that even further with the announcement of Project Linda. Dubbed as the best realization of what mobile computing can do, Project Linda is basically a notebook case for the Razer Phone that can transform it into an Android-based laptop.

You simply need to dock your Razer Phone inside the where the trackpad normally goes. Using a plug and USB-C for power and data transfers, the smartphone instantly turns into the trackpad. Project Linda includes a 2560-by-1440 pixel, 13-inch LCD screen and even includes a full-sized Razer-branded keyboard with Chroma lighting.

It’s clearly still in a prototype stage, but we still have doubts that it will actually provide a seamless experience. First off is that it’s running on Android, and while the operating system has been largely improved over the years, it’s still has limitation when it comes to desktop usage.

Same goes for Razer, who normally showcases high-end concepts at CES every year but no word on how it will proceed (remember the triple-monitor notebook showcased last year that was actually stolen?).

It’s a great concept that’s for sure, though we may have to wait and see how Project Linda’s final conceptualizations come into place.
