Microsoft announces the Surface Hub 2 with 50.5-inch display

Surface Hub 2

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 isn't yet disclosing pricing, but Seiler said it would be "in line with similar competitive devices". This is an innovative form factor that could fit well in your company's workflow. The Surface chief says the hub is for a "new culture of work" and is "designed to be used by Teams to get people out of their seats".

After teasing a next-gen Surface Hub in March, Microsoft today took the wraps off Surface Hub 2 via a new blog post by Panos Panay.

Microsoft's also introducing a new "tiling" experience with the Surface Hub 2. 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. Surface Hub 1, which came in two models, a 55-inch one for $9,000 and an 84-inch one for $22,000.

Of course, it was designed with Microsoft apps in mind, including Microsoft Teams, Microsoft Whiteboard, Office 365 and Windows 10 - it's not clear how other platforms will work beyond simply Skyping in.

Introducing the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid
What is thus, in a sense, the second generation of the Subaru Crosstrek hybrid will be the automaker's first plug-in model. We just hope the 2019 version offers more significant fuel economy gains than its predecessor.

The gorgeous Surface Hub 2 features a 50.5-inch multi-touch display with 4K resolution. Dynamic rotation allows you to use the best orientation for your content to help people work in the way that best suits them and the people they are collaborating with.

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. Microsoft's bringing Windows Timeline to the Surface Hub 2 software as well, so users will be able to easily access their files and apps from other devices instantly right from the home screen on the Surface Hub 2. Imagine how much your team could get done being able to work simultaneously across Microsoft Whiteboard, PowerBI, PowerPoint, and a full view video call. The original Surface Hub advanced this mission, making it possible to join a meeting or open a whiteboard with one touch. Businesses can mount four of these giant screens together on a wall and link them as multiple monitors for tasks like visualizing charts or have various tidbits of a project spread across of them or just make their offices look well, cool.

Concrete release date information is also nowhere to be found. Surface Hub 2 will be tested with select customers throughout the rest of 2018, and the company expects to formally release the product sometime in 2019.

Surface Hub 2 looks a lot sleeker and more portable than Surface Hub 1 and was built for "immersive collaboration", Seiler said. The company will start testing the Surface Hub 2 with some of its commercial customers this year, and it will be generally available next year.
