Microsoft and Steelcase today shared in New York new details about the Surface Hub 2S product line, introducing the new 85-inch screen size and bringing battery-enabled mobility to the 50-inch collaboration device.
Surface Hub 2S is a product built to empower teams by bridging digital and physical workspaces. It harnesses the power of Windows 10, Microsoft Teams, Office 365, Microsoft Whiteboard and the intelligent cloud. This new device packs even more performance into a thinner and lighter design. It is forty percent lighter than its predecessor, and has a 60 percent thinner display. It offers a 4K+ 50-inch multi-touch display along with 50 percent faster graphics performance than the original Surface Hub.
Surface Hub 2S will start shipping in the U.S. in June and will be priced at $8,999.99. Surface Hub 2S will be available in the additional Surface Hub markets shortly thereafter.
When paired with the Steelcase Roam Mobile Stand and APC Charge Mobile Battery, Surface Hub 2S creates a mobile collaboration tool that frees teams from the conference room – no AC power connectivity required.
Later this year, Microsoft will also offer Surface Hub 2 Display, for spaces that need a great pen and touch enabled interactive display, without the compute, as well as a new configuration option for Surface Hub 2S customers to run Windows 10 Pro or Enterprise on their device(s) for specialized app scenarios.
Microsoft is also adding an 85-inch version to the Surface Hub family. The company will begin testing Surface Hub 2S 85-inch with select customers in early 2020.
