Microsoft reveals Surface Hub 2, its all-new interactive whiteboard

Microsoft announces the Surface Hub 2 with 50.5-inch display

The gorgeous Surface Hub 2 features a 50.5-inch multi-touch display with 4K resolution. There have been rumors that the Surface Hub 2 will be one of the first Microsoft devices to have the Windows 10 Core OS at its center, along with a new type of composable shell, but Seiler wouldn't comment on that. Microsoft has clearly listened to customer feedback and is working on making the device more affordable as well. One where unlocking the power of the team has never been more important. But as Microsoft's concept of the workplace has evolved, the Surface Hub 2 will be a key component of what Microsoft now calls the "intelligent edge", a catch-all term for the PCs, phones, and other devices that will interface with the "intelligent cloud" of Microsoft's apps and services, Day said. I see it with our team daily.

Microsoft doesn't mention a larger unit like the current 84-inch model, and there's good reason why the company may not take this larger avenue: Tiling. The device has been a quiet success in the business world, with Microsoft selling devices to over 5,000 companies in 25 countries, including more than half the Fortune 100.

It's a departure for the Surface Hub product line.

"Seeing four of the lovely Surface Hub 2s lined up together has undeniable visual effect and will have a profound impact on what groups can accomplish together, allowing users to display multiple pieces of content side-by-side", says chief product officer Panos Panay.

Surface Hub 2 scales and adapts to your space through tiling up to 4 screens together in portrait or landscape view. It runs Windows 10 and supports the Surface Pen.

Is this the next entry in Microsoft's hardware roadmap?

Microsoft hasn't revealed a release date or pricing for the Surface Hub 2, but given the first one started at £5,709 we doubt the second-gen display will be much cheaper, though Microsoft could have a lease program to get the Hub 2 into businesses without forcing them to shell out a hefty wad of cash. Day allowed that it would be "competitive with what's in market today".

Some unanswered questions linger.

Surface Hub, Microsoft's touch- and stylus-enabled digital whiteboard for enterprise group collaboration and video conferencing, is getting a big update in 2019. And of course, we have no idea of the components inside. Regarding that device, Day said he had nothing further to share.
