Razer Phone 2 Already In the Works, Bundled With Project Linda and Coming at IFA 2018

By Radu Iorga

Back at CES 2018 Razer came out with the Project Linda initiative, a laptop dock especially designed for the Razer Phone. It expands its battery life and screen estate, plus adds a bigger keyboard and bigger screen obviously. Today the first details about Razer Phone 2 have surfaced and once again they have to do with the Project Linda.

Sources are saying that the finalized Project Linda could be coming at IFA 2018, with the Razer Phone 2 generation. The name Razer Phone 2 is still pending and the sources claim that the debut will take place in September. The source doesn’t have specs, but they do have some interesting details. Project Linda and Razer Phone 2 may debut as a bundle.

For those of you not sure what Project Linda is, we’re talking about an Android laptop, a dock for the phone with some extras. It seems that this project is actually not 100% ready for prime time and the Razer execs will decide about over the next few days. CEO Min-Liang Tan replied to Marques Brownlee on Twitter recently suggesting that the device will happen.

Since Razer Phone is a gaming phone, we expect the second model to sport an even better CPU, probably the Snapdragon 845 and move on to even higher RAM and storage quantities. The Project Linda itself could be upgraded, with improved battery life, higher resolution, ergonomic and backlit keyboard, plus powerful speakers (even though the Razer Phone itself has powerful ones).

I guess we’ll just have to wait and see…

More Videos Worth Sharing From CES 2018: Dell XPS 13 (2018) and Razer Project Linda

By Tim

Tonight we have a couple more short videos from Andrew over at AMDTech. These will be covering the new Dell XPS 13 and the somewhat interesting Razer Project Linda.

The Dell  XPS 13 of course has received a refresh and comes in a new color and with some changes to processors and also to the battery.

Razer’s Project Linda is basically a notebook that allows you to insert your Razer phone in where you would normally find the track pad. Drop the phone in place and you now have a 13 inch Android notebook.

I am not sure why you would want to do this, since you could just get a Chromebook and still be able to run Android apps. However this is still a very slick looking machine.

So now let us get to those videos, both short, but very informative.

That is all for now,

Tim

CES 2018: Razer Project Linda Turns Razer Phone Into a Laptop’s Brains

By Radu Iorga

Remember 2011? That’s when Motorola Atrix and its lapdock were a thing, quickly followed by some ASUS PadFones. It’s been a few years and the trend winded down. Now we don’t see phones inserted into a laptop’s slot as much, but some companies just won’t give up. Razer for example just unveiled a laptop dock for the Razer Phone, dubbed Project Linda.

It gets inserted right where the trackpad would go and it powers up the machine. It can be used as a trackpad, it hooks up via USB Type-C and Project Linda is basically a slightly modified Razer Blade Stealth. There’s no Power button here, since the Razer Phone lets you control that aspect. There are also no speakers here, not that you’d need them, since the Razer Phone has those badass THX ones.

Project Linda, the base offers an extra 200 GB of storage and the full QWERTY keyboard, that lights up. It also charges the Razer Phone and from what people at CES 2018 are reporting,t he machine shows most apps as if they were running on an Android tablet. Apps like Chrome work better with keyboard and mouse, but there are also quirky actions, since things have been optimized by developers, since Project Linda is just a prototype.

There’s an USB Type-A port on board and the machine is made of black CNC aluminum. It’s 0.5 inch thick, weighs a bit under 3 pounds and features a Full HD 13.3 inch screen panel. The keyboard has 1.2 mm key travel and 69 grams of actuation force. Project Linda fully charges the Razer Phone 3 times. Overall, it should provide about 5 hours of usage time.

Razer plans to release a mobile gaming and entertainment device soon

By Samuel Axon

Gaming hardware and lifestyle company Razer is poised to release a new mobile device later this year, according to an interview on CNBC’s Managing Asia with Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan. “I can say that we are coming up with a mobile device specifically geared towards gamers and entertainment,” he said. “We are hoping to have it come by the end of the year.”

Razer has launched what could be considered mobile gaming devices before. In addition to its popular line of Razer Blade laptops, the company revealed a Windows-driven gaming tablet, called the Razer Edge, at CES in 2013. Ars had good things to say about it at the time. The Edge was positioned as a gaming tablet, though it was certainly capable of playing videos or music and other entertainment applications. Tan played up the importance of the entertainment-side for this new device—and for Razer as a company moving forward.

“Entertainment is going to be massive,” he said, when talking about the future of both Razer and the industry. He talked up Razer’s acquisition of THX last year, and when CNBC asked him if Razer will become an entertainment company, he said: “Well, we already are. I mean, given that gaming’s probably the largest segment in entertainment. What else is left? There’s movies and there’s music.”
