Microsoft unveiled the successor to its massive digital whiteboard called Surface Hub a few months back. It initially said that the Surface Hub 2 would be out at some point in 2019. The company’s release timeframe for this product is now a bit more precise. Microsoft has said that it’s going to launch the Surface Hub 2 in the second quarter of next year.
The Surface Hub 2 is a massive display that’s powered by Windows 10. The touchscreen display is marketed as the perfect tool for businesses who want their employees to collaborate during meetings in a digital environment.
Microsoft says that the Surface Hub 2S is going to be launched first. The “S” model will be lighter and thinner than the original Surface Hub but with the same user experience. The display will be slightly smaller at 50.5 inches. It also gets a 4K camera, support for Microsoft Teams, and enhanced microphones.
The Surface Hub 2X will arrive in 2020. It will bring significant upgrades such as the ability to tilt and rotate the display and multi-user support. It will be possible for Surface Hub 2S owners to get this experience as well since it has a replaceable processor cartridge. They will be able to upgrade to the Surface Hub 2X experience if they so desire come 2020.
