In 2018 we will begin to test Surface Hub 2 with select commercial customers. 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 allows the user to rotate the screen between portrait and landscape modes, with a nifty mechanism on the rear facilitating this.

Microsoft does not yet have much to say on Surface Hub 2 specs. We were told that this is to render the new Surface Hub into a more portable device that's easier to move.

Microsoft's also introducing a new "tiling" experience with the Surface Hub 2. Pricing will be "competitive" with other devices on the market, Microsoft says.

The product provides access to Microsoft Teams, Microsoft Whiteboard, Office 365, Windows 10 and the intelligent cloud.


The Surface Hub 2 won't be battery-powered, though Microsoft's not saying exactly what technology will power it. The Surface Hub will largely be showing content from PCs and smartphones, and people are flipping between orientations on those devices is becoming more and more common. Though Microsoft is announcing the Surface Hub 2 in time for businesses to start planning for purchases a year or two out, some-not all-of these capabilities will come to the original Surface Hub. Companies can line up four Surface Hub 2s together to get an incredibly lovely experience across all the Surface Hub 2s. 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". Rather, the ability to switch from landscape to portrait via a hinge will prove as a huge attraction, according to Microsoft.

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. "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".

Speaking of size, one surprising bit of information we found was that the Surface Hub 2 will have just a 50.5-inch display.

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