Surface Hub 2 coming in 2019, looks incredible

Microsoft announces the Surface Hub 2 with 50.5-inch display

The Surface Hub 2, which Microsoft will begin testing later this year and ship some time in 2019, is the successor to Surface Hub 1, which launched in March 2016. 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 exact specs aren't out yet, but the Surface Hub 2 will have a 50.5-inch display with a 4K or greater resolution. It has 4K rotating cameras, speakers and the far-field microphone arrays Microsoft has been pushing (for Cortana).

Almost three years after the launch of the original Surface Hubinteractive whiteboard, Microsoft introduced the second-generation model on Tuesday, May 15. Although Teams started as a rival to Slack and other workgroup messaging apps when it debuted in late 2016, Microsoft has been refashioning the software into a Skype for Business replacement, complete with the video conferencing and telephony capabilities.

Microsoft debuted the first-generation Surface Hub in January, 2015, at the remarkable event that also introduced the world to the HoloLens. It comes with Windows 10, Microsoft Whiteboard, Cloud, Microsoft Teams and Office 365. Now Surface Hub 2 takes it even further with multi-user sign in. I am not exactly sure what Microsoft considers to be a competitive device. This device brings out the best bits of the Surface Hub 1 and advances all the parts that needed advancing.

Earlier this year a report revealed that Microsoft is working on the next generation Surface Hub and it could be announced as soon as this year. Microsoft says that there are 5,000 companies using Surface Hubs, including half of Fortune 100 companies.

Surface Hub 2 will also support a new multiuser sign-in feature that is created to further encourage collaboration.

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".

While we don't know very much about it yet, Microsoft showed off the new model's sleek design and shared some information about key features, such as an improved display and portrait mode support.

When I asked Seiler more about the version of Windows 10 that will power Surface Hub 2, she said "Windows 10 is what it's built on", and wouldn't go beyond that.
