At CES 2018 we also got a tantalizing first look at Project Linda which aims to turn your Razer Phone into a straight-up laptop. The infamous gaming company is known for their wide variety of gaming peripherals including laptops, mice, displays, and more. It'll be a shame to see Project Linda go to docks, but even if Razer comes up with the commercial launch, it won't be cheap. The entire system would be rendered completely useless if Razer changes the phone's form factor with its next release-an extremely common move by smartphone manufacturers. Once you slide in your Razer Phone in Project Linda, you can play games on it, browse the Internet, watch YouTube videos or send email. The phone features a 5.7-inch display and its touchpad can be used as a second screen to access the apps, tools and more. The Razer phone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor paired with 8GB of RAM. The dock also features its own 53.6 Wh internal battery that, when fully charged, can charge the docked phone three separate times.
Razer's Project Linda is essentially a phone dock with keyboard and screen that's meant to give users a full-fledged laptop experience. Unfortunately, Razer has said that Project Linda is only a prototype so there is a possibility that the device is not going to be manufactured on a large scale for the public to use. The keyboard on Project Linda is backlit and is powered by Razer Chroma which should make Razer loyalists feel right at home. As far as connectivity is concerned, it comes with a 3.5-mm audio jack, a USB-A port, a USB-C charging port, 720p webcam, and a dual-array microphone. However, for sound output, it relies on Razer Phone's speakers as it doesn't have any built-in speaker, and, it only works with Razer Phone and not any other Android smartphone. The Razer Phone's performance, display, and dual front-firing speakers combine seamlessly with Project Linda's larger screen, keyboard, and battery to provide the ultimate mobile hybrid setup for gaming, creativity, and productivity.
Yerry Mina joins Barcelona
Barcelona have confirmed the signing of Colombia worldwide Yerry Mina from Palmeiras on a five-and-a-half year deal. Mina arrives to provide competition for Samuel Umtiti, Gerard Pique and Thomas Vermaelen in defence.
Unfortunately, Project Linda is still very much in the prototype phase, with no release date or price point in sight.
