Razer Phone Gets Netflix HDR and Dolby Plus 5.1

Razer Phone Gets Netflix HDR and Dolby Plus 5.1

Razer announced Tuesday that it has partnered with Netflix to allow owners of its flagship smartphone, the Razer Phone, to stream their favorite TV shows in HDR and Dolby Digital Plus 5.1.

Project Linda users would simply slide their phone into a slot in the laptop's chassis where the touchpad would normally reside, turning the notebook frame into an Android-powered computer. In a nutshell, it's a laptop shell, which uses the Razer Phone as the touchpad.

"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".

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. The keyboard features Razer Chroma backlighting. You can also connect a wireless or wired mouse to the device for full Android gaming.

Project Linda also has a 53.6 Wh internal battery that can fully charge the docked Razer phone three times without AC power.

The laptop also boasts 200GB of built-in storage, so there is some offline storage available.

Connectivity on Project Linda includes a 3.5mm audio jack, USB-A port and a USB-C charging port.


Obviously, Project Linda uses Android as its operating system.

I for one can't help but feel like this project is a bit of extra justification for the Razor phone's shortcomings and existence.

You can register on the Razer site to receive updates and announcements related to the project.

You might think it would be inconvenient to have your phone slotted into a laptop, but you can pretty much do everything you would do on your phone on this thing.

However, it is not a traditional gaming laptop despite having the same design language as per the company's Blade gaming laptops. The company isn't slowing down as it has unveiled another piece of awesome hardware.

Founded in 2005 and dual-headquartered in San Francisco and Singapore, Razer has nine offices worldwide and is recognized as the leading brand for gamers in the USA, Europe and China.
