However, the Project Linda laptop is still in the prototype stage, and it could take a while to be launched as a final product. 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. Yes, that company which makes some cool gaming laptops, keyboards, mice and other gaming peripherals.

Gaming-focused computer veteran Razer has made a habit of demonstrating ambitious, droolworthy or just outright insane concepts at major trade shows like CES, so we can't say we're shocked to see Project Linda aiming to bridge the gap between mobile devices and laptops this year.

Its Quad HD touchscreen extends the 120 Hz experience available on the Razer Phone to a larger display.

"Project Linda combines the best of both worlds, bringing a larger screen and physical keyboard to the Android environment, enhancing the experience for gaming and productivity", he said.
