Razer Phone First Smartphone Offering HDR and Dolby 5.1 for Netflix

Razer Phone First Smartphone Offering HDR and Dolby 5.1 for Netflix

The area where the trackpad is usually placed is where the Razer Phone gets docked on the Razer Project Linda.

But on the specs side, things are far more sparse, because this laptop is powered by the Razer Phone, a 6-inch Android device that's powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset. However, instead of a more outlandish concept (like a three-screened laptop), their latest project is a bit more feasible. The Razer Phone, launched a few weeks ago as a device for gamers with a 120 Hz IGZO display and focused on content consumption with loud front facing speakers, is now the recommended premium device that Netflix suggests to watch Netflix content on.

The way it works is that the Razer Phone docks in face-up position where the touchpad would normally be found. But it's a concept that makes a lot of sense, not just for the Razer Phone, but for all sorts of mobile phones. What do you guys think of Project Linda? .

Most apps run in tablet mode and will certainly take some optimizing but the main goal of Project Linda is to extend the gaming aspect from the phone to a bigger screen.

By default, the Razer Phone's touchscreen acts as a trackpad but if you connect a wireless mouse it becomes a second screen, used for menu information or extra stats in certain games and apps.

Enjoy the comfort and precision of a backlit laptop keyboard, powered by Razer Chroma. There's also a 720p webcam and dual-array microphone embedded just above the Full HD display, while audio comes direct from the Razer Phone's impressive speakers. Hit up the project's official web page for more information.

Razer has revealed a very odd mix of laptop and mobile phone hardware in a bid to utilize its new Razer Phone. Connectivity options include a USB Type-C port and 3.5 mm audio jack. The device is clearly aimed at the massively popular smartphone gaming market, and aligns with Razer's coin-based microtransaction business, especially in regions like China that embrace both mobile and browser-based gaming.
