Microsoft Announces Surface Hub 2 With Four New Features

  • Microsoft announces the Surface Hub 2 with 50.5-inch display

Microsoft's giant Surface Hub displays for business customers has done well and the company is now showing off the next generation of this product. (The outgoing Surface Hub ran "Windows 10 Team", a customized version of Windows 10 Enterprise.) Unsurprisingly, there's a heavy emphasis on collaboration: Microsoft says it's developing an ambient display mode, called dynamic collaboration, that will allow people to log into the Surface Hub 2 using the built-in fingerprint reader and pull their work into a single "collaborative" document stored in the cloud. Considering the new one will have a better display and (probably) more power, and will come with a more svelte design, you can expect to see the Surface Hub 2 cost just as much, if not more, than the first generation. Even with this much sleeker look, it still contains speakers, a far-field microphone array, and a camera.

Up to four Surface Hub 2 screens can be tiled together in portrait or landscape view.

Microsoft's also introducing a new "tiling" experience with the Surface Hub 2. It's a solid, interesting concept, though as a wired device it can't be as mobile as Millennials are.

And Microsoft loves their hinges and this device is no different, it can now rotate 90 degrees.

The firm has revealed a giant 50.5inch touchscreen called the Surface Hub 2, which it says is created to replace a whiteboard. This spells out to something around $5000 - one-fourth of the Surface Hub's price tag. I am not exactly sure what Microsoft considers to be a competitive device.


Businesses in need of wall-based Windows 10 devices rejoice, there's a new Surface Hub 2 in town. Companies can line up four Surface Hub 2s together to get an incredibly attractive experience across all the Surface Hub 2s.

Speaking of size, one surprising bit of information we found was that the Surface Hub 2 will have just a 50.5-inch display.

Microsoft launched Surface hub back in June 2015.

Though the Hub 2 will run Microsoft's Whiteboard and Skype apps, as the first Surface Hub did, Teams will be the centerpiece of the new Surface Hub 2. "That's why Microsoft today is announcing Surface Hub 2, designed from the ground up to get people engaged - to get out of their seats, create and dynamically collaborate as a team, regardless of location".

So far, Microsoft is keeping pricing and technical details under wraps.
