Not only did the company show off a pretty cool Project Linda concept, they also announced at CES this morning that its Razer Phone is getting access to Netflix HDR and Dolby Plus 5.1.

The idea of using a phone to power a laptop isn't entirely new; Motorola gave it a shot back in 2011 with the Laptop Dock for the Atrix 4G.

Razer's Project Linda laptop seamlessly docks the Razer Phone inside its chassis where a touchpad would normally reside, and connects with the press of a button. Few phones are equipped like Razer's phone. Users benefit from a responsive and comfortable typing experience, customized for the Android environment with dedicated keys for navigation, search and app selection. In fact, the core of Project Linda is actually the Razer Phone that the company released a year ago and merged it into a laptop shell. And, as with any laptop, a mouse can be connected as a peripheral for more precise control, particularly if the phone needs to be used as a second screen. And the Razer Phone's 120Hz refresh rate translates to smooth visuals on the larger 13.3-inch laptop's display as well. Instead, Razer added an extra 200 GB of storage as well as a 720p webcam, a battery, and a microphone. What's different about Project Linda is that it has a gaming edge, both in its design and the fact that it's built specifically for the Razer Phone.

As with many of Razer's concepts, there's now no release date for Project Linda.

Razer's award-winning hardware includes high-performance gaming peripherals, Blade gaming laptops and the acclaimed Razer Phone.

That said, Razer's intent is to provide "enhanced productivity and differentiated gaming experiences" with Project Linda.
