Microsoft announces Surface Hub 2

Microsoft announces the Surface Hub 2 with 50.5-inch display

The Surface Hub 2, which Microsoft will begin testing later this year and ship some time in 2019, is the successor to Surface Hub 1, which launched in March 2016.

Coming in at 50.5-inch with a 4K+ display, the new Surface Hub 2 boasts a handsome design with tiny bezels that offer an immersive collaboration experience.

The PixelSense display has a 4K+ resolution with a 3:2 aspect ratio, which should be familiar to anyone that has used Surface-branded hardware. With the introduction of the Surface Hub 2 comes the ability to align up to four Hubs together to create one enormous touch-supporting screen. "The new Surface Hub 2 is sleeker, more agile and more affordable to fit any workspace or work style", explained Panas Panay, chief product officer in a blog.

Microsoft debuted the first-generation Surface Hub in January, 2015, at the remarkable event that also introduced the world to the HoloLens.

According to the company, the design inspiration for Surface Hub 2 was taking whiteboard-enabled collaboration beyond the conference room and enhancing productivity for different kinds of users. I am not exactly sure what Microsoft considers to be a competitive device.

Speaking of size, one surprising bit of information we found was that the Surface Hub 2 will have just a 50.5-inch display. Four of the massive screens can even be linked together. The Surface Hub will largely be showing content from PCs and smartphones, and people are flipping between orientations on those devices is becoming more and more common. The one on the Surface Hub 2 takes some cues from those on Surface Studio and Surface Book, said Seiler, but is still unique, as it is designed for "dynamic rotation".

Microsoft today announced the successor to its high-end Surface Hub whiteboard, the Surface Hub 2.

With the Surface Hub 2, the upcoming device will support multi-user sign-ins. Hanging from a conference room wall or specialized stand, previous models were created to be used in landscape mode. The whole idea of a Surface Hub was to make collaboration and videoconferencing much more efficient.

Unfortunately, Microsoft doesn't plan to share further details of the Surface Hub 2 until later this year, including the price.
