Project Linda is a 13.3-inch laptop design that is powered by the Android-established Razer Phone. It is a smartphone and laptop hybrid concept that aims to unite the Android environment using a notebook. Meanwhile, HyperFlux is a truly wireless mouse technologies that gets its power from the mouse pad. This technology includes a mouse and a compatible mouse pad to ensure that users don’t need to charge the wireless mouse separately.
In Project Linda, a notebook docks the Razer Telephone on its body, in the area in which a touchpad is usually put. It doesn’t dock like Samsung’s DeX or even require a separate adapter. It connects with the press of a button and immediately transforms Project Linda to an Android laptop. Certainly, Razer has an intriguing new merchandise in Project Linda. Razer co-founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan, states, “Project Linda combines the best of both worlds, bringing a larger display and physical keyboard to the Android surroundings, improving the experience for gaming and productivity.”
The laptop has a 15mm thin unibody CNC aluminum chassis and weighs under 1.25kg such as the docked phone.It sports a 13.3-inch Quad HD touchscreen and comes with an integrated keypad. The 5.7-inch screen on the Razer Phone may be utilized as a touchpad, or as a second screen to get apps and tools. The notebook keyboard also includes that the Razer Chroma backlighting that can be personalised with various color choices.
The concept laptop also features a 53.6Whr internal battery that can control the docked phone to full capacity over three occasions, Razer states. Inside the notebook is 200GB of storage. In terms of connectivity, Project Linda comes with a built-in 3.5-millimetre audio jack, a USB Type-A port, a USB Type-C charging interface, 720p webcam, plus a dual-array microphone. As of now, it is uncertain when Project Linda will hit the marketplace.
In terms of the HyperFlux, it is comparable to the Corsair Dark Core RGB mouse along with its own Corsair MM1000 Qi Wireless Charging Mouse Pad which was also unveiled at CES 2018 this year. While it does not utilize the Qi charging standard, the Razer’s alternative uses makes the mouse pad to create a magnetic field that transfers power directly into the mouse rather than charging battery. Razer claims that the Razer Mamba HyperFlux mouse and the Razer Firefly HyperFlux mouse pad would be the world’s first such devices that provide power directly into the mouse, eliminating the need for a battery. Razer CEO Tan states, “While other companies have tried to do wireless charging for mice, they’ve been not able to achieve accurate wireless power as their mice still need a battery to be charged.
The Razer HyperFlux wireless hardware combination will be made accessible Q1 2018, and is priced at $249 (roughly Rs. 15,900). The Razer Mamba HyperFlux mouse has an optical detector capable of 16,000 DPI, and includes Razer Chroma customisable lighting, something which finds its way to the Razer Firefly HyperFlux mouse pad too.
