Display: 5.7-inch 2K AMOLED screen Camera: 12MP+13MP rear camera with PDAF, dual LED flash + 8MP front snapper Processor: Snapdragon 835/Exynos 8895 RAM: 8GB Storage: 64GB, expandable Battery: 4,000mAh Add-ons: Dolby ATMOS and THX certified stereo speakers, 120 Hz refresh rate on its UltraMotion screen, dual SIM card slots, 4G support and more.

"Android power users and laptop enthusiasts share a need for performance in a mobile form factor, which we provide with our award-winning Razer Phone and Razer laptops", said Min-Liang Tan, Co-founder and CEO of Razer. But Razer's new contraption hopes to give the name a boost. At the worldwide consumer electronics show (CES) 2018, the gaming titan unveiled a 13.3-inch laptop, which puts more sense into Razer Phone's being into this world. Once docked, the phone transforms into a 6.3-inch touchpad for all your controls on the 13.3-inch laptop screen. However, unlike similar dock concepts, Project Linda turns the phone into an interactive touch pad.

Having the Razer phone docked into the laptop also charges the phone thanks to a built in power bank, ensuring that you're ready to take the phone on the road as soon as you're done with your gaming session.

China could slow/halt US Treasury purchases

India to tour Ireland before England
The sides have met each other just once in T20I cricket, in Nottingham during the World T20 in England in 2009. India have tours of both England and Australia lined up for the 2018 season.

As one of the few companies in the world to straddle user interfaces, laptops and smartphones, Project Linda is a groundbreaking concept that blurs the lines between the smartphone and the laptop. The device comes with dedicated set of keys for search, navigation and app selection. The laptop keyboard also includes the Razer Chroma backlighting that can be personalised with various colour options. First is the dock being the exact size and shape of the Razer Phone. The concept also features a 53.6 Wh internal battery that can rapidly charge the docked phone to full capacity over three times while away from AC power. Even with the smartphone docked in, it weighs just 1.25kg, which is at par with most ultra-thin notebooks with a 13-inch screen. Inside the laptop is 200 GB of storage, allowing for offline backups and additional local media and app storage.

By far the coolest thing we've been able to spend some one-on-one time with at CES 2018 so far, Project Linda sure feels nearly ready for primetime. The content from the Razer Phone will then be shown on the Project Linda's large display; you can use the provided physical QWERTY keyboard of the laptop and the Razer Phone itself as a trackpad for a genuine laptop experience.
