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

The new device will be tested with select commercial customers before being made available for purchase in 2019.

'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. The Surface Hub 2 that it has announced today will have a smaller 50.5 inch display with a resolution that's greater than 4K and a 3:2 aspect ratio which will result in very slim bezels. The Microsoft Surface Hub 2 also features a 4K webcam (which is removable and rotatable) and far-field microphones for a better video calling experience.

Microsoft is also enabling users to tile up to four displays, which can be used in portrait or landscape view to enable an extended view.

According to him, the new device will be easy to set up and work instantly as you walk into the room. Interested businesses and customers can find out more about the device here.

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

Surface Hub 2 looks a lot sleeker and more portable than Surface Hub 1 and was built for "immersive collaboration", Seiler said.

The Surface Hub 2 won't be battery-powered, though Microsoft's not saying exactly what technology will power it.

Now finally the tech giant has come up with a successor to its Surface Hub called Surface Hub 2. Four of the massive screens can even be linked together. This device brings out the best bits of the Surface Hub 1 and advances all the parts that needed advancing. 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".

Surface Hub 2 offers multi-user sign in to authenticate multiple people in the same Surface Hub 2 workspace, allowing them to simultaneously access documents and ideas and merge them. An intriguing aspect about this collaborative digital whiteboard is that it is now able to rotate from landscape to portrait mode.

Microsoft's Surface Hub, its conference room computer, was something of a surprise hit. We were told to expect more information about Surface Hub 2 in late summer/early fall.

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