Surface Hub 2 is another massive PC for walls

Microsoft announces the Surface Hub 2 with 50.5-inch display Microsoft Surface Hub 2 is a 50.5-inch 4K Display for the Next Generation Conference Rooms

Have you worked with the original Surface Hub? 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, said Microsoft's Chief Product Officer Panos Panay.

The ability to rotate the Surface Hub 2 to a portrait orientation is made possible by a rather clever mechanism which appears to work in a fashion similar to the muscle wire lock on the Surface Book.

Time will tell if the Surface Hub 2 can replicate the success of the original Surface Hub, which shipped to 5,000 customers across 25 markets previous year, according to Microsoft. But it's not just where people are working that's changing, it's how they are coming together.

Under the hood, the Surface Hub 2 runs Microsoft 365, an enterprise software suite consisting of Windows 10, Office 365, Enterprise Mobility Security, Microsoft Teams (Microsoft's Slack-like group chat app), and Microsoft Whiteboard. The 50.5-inch Surface Hub 2 trades the outgoing model's 16:9 aspect ratio for 3:2, ups the resolution to "greater than 4K", and reduces the weight to between 55 and 77 pounds, which is lighter than the first Surface Hub. Multiple (up to four) Surface Hubs can also be tiled together in portrait mode for "undeniable visual effect" and enabling teams to get work done across Microsoft Whiteboard, PowerBI, PowerPoint, and a full view video call. 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".

After meeting his Chinese counterpart on Sunday, Zarif said he was hopeful of forging a "clear future design" for the accord.

This feature is a truly magical experience.

We started on the journey of empowering teams with the original Surface Hub and the value it provides has resonated with businesses worldwide.

We haven't got any concrete specs beyond the Microsoft Surface Hub 2's display size, but we'll update this page as soon as we know more. It will be available for purchase in 2019. The device, Microsoft said, is emblematic of the modern workplace, where people are more mobile and spread out and companies need better ways to communicate and collaborate.
