Microsoft Unveils Gorgeous New Surface Hub 2

Surface Hub 2

Today, Microsoft is announcing its Surface Hub 2 with a bunch of new features to silence the competition once again.

Under the covers, Surface Hub 2 will run Microsoft 365, which means Windows 10, Office 365 and Enterprise Mobility + Security. Despite the rumours and speculations, Microsoft remains totally committed to the Surface Hub product line. "Surface Hub 2 was designed from the ground up to be used by teams - to get people out of their seats, to connect and ideate, regardless of location".

This is the second-generation of the Surface Hub, and it looks like it jumped from the 20th to the 21st-century in just three years.

"We are still building the device", said Robin Seiler, General Manager of Hardware Engineering for Surface Hub, in a conversation I had with her yesterday. The whole idea of a Surface Hub was to make collaboration and videoconferencing much more efficient. The new and improved Surface Hub 2 boasts a higher-resolution touchscreen than the original, plus dual removable 4K rotating front cameras that support video calling, enhanced far-field microphones, and other improvements.

The software on the Surface Hub 2 is, of course, based on Windows 10. This will also allow users to share and work on different apps side-by-side. The original Surface Hub 2 came out back in 2016 and it had a 55 inch 1080p display as well as an option for an 84 inch 4K display. The company has this time added more robust collaborative tools which can allow multiple users to simply sign in simultaneously through a fingerprint reader and pull up their work onto a single workspace.

We haven't got any concrete specs beyond the Microsoft Surface Hub 2's display size, but we'll update this page as soon as we know more.

It is worth to take a note that the new Surface Hub 2 will be available for purchases in 2019 albeit the product will be tested with some selected commercial customers in this year.

Microsoft hasn't revealed any details regarding the pricing or even the exact launch date. Microsoft has clearly listened to customer feedback and is working on making the device more affordable as well.
