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. Instead, there is a space where the Razer Phone can be docked, allowing the 5.7-inch screen to be used as a touchpad or as a second screen for games or work.

Project Linda proves interesting for mobile gaming, adding mouse and keyboard control for extra precision.

It just woudn't be CES without a prototype product from Razer, and this time around the company is showcasing Project Linda, an Android laptop/phone hybrid. It's hard to say whether Project Linda will ever make it to market but it certainly shows how Razer envisage extending the power of smartphones to a bigger screen. Users benefit from a responsive and comfortable typing experience, customized for the Android environment with dedicated keys for navigation, search and app selection. And the Razer Phone's 120Hz refresh rate translates to smooth visuals on the larger 13.3-inch laptop's display as well.

Razer always come to CES with something in their hand and there is no exception for this year's edition as well. Razer also includes some basic laptop amenities, including a 720p webcam, USB-A and USB-C ports, and a 3.5mm audio jack.
