Microsoft Surface Hub 2S is ready to roll into your office

Surface Hub 2S goes on sale in June starting at $8,999 Microsoft's Surface Hub 2S to start shipping in June, new 85-inch version coming in 2020

The original Surface Hub was an enterprise-focused device, and that's not changing with the Surface Hub 2S.

The pricing for the smaller model will remain about the same: $8,999.99 for the 50-inch Surface Hub 2S, which will start shipping in the U.S. in June and can be purchased through authorized resellers.

The 50-inch Surface Hub 2S is just a starting point.

During a media demonstration in New York City, Microsoft showed off how the Surface Hub 2S can deal with a four-person video chat, as well as collaborate with nearby Surface laptops using its digital whiteboard. The 4K+, 50-inch multi-touch display has the highest resolution of any device in its class, we're told, and offers 50 percent faster graphics performance compared to the original Surface Hub.

Microsoft today revealed some new information regarding this upcoming device, read about them below. The first is a rolling mount made in partnership with office furniture maker Steelcase, and the second is the APC Charge Mobile Battery that allows the Surface Hub 2S to be used without a connection to a wall outlet. (The June availability date is for the 2S 50-inch system only, however; the 85-inch model won't begin testing with customers until early 2020.) Pricing starts at $8,999.99 and goes up to $12,000 with all the extras included.

The major upgrades in the Surface Hub 2S are in the hardware and specs.

In this show, Dave Kearney from the Surface Hub engineering team shows you how the light and mobile design of Surface Hub 2S allows you to turn any space into a teamwork space.

The new Surface Hub 2S also features a 4K-enabled camera and far-field mic arrays for improved conference calling.

In addition to featuring the 8th Generation Core i5, the Surface Hub 2S will have 8GB DDR4 of RAM; a solid-state 128GB drive; a USB-A and USB-C/DP port (plus RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet, HDMI Video and Mini-DisplayPort video output port); and 4 UB-C (data or FPR) ports on the monitor itself for camera or data. Microsoft's second-generation model, which Redmond first teased previous year, comes with the same combination of built-in apps and software, including Windows 10, Office 365, Microsoft Teams, and the Microsoft Whiteboard app that can be used with the included Surface Hub pen.

"Dynamic collaboration" is what will set the Surface Hub 2 apart from other similar devices, officials have said.

It will be interesting to see how many of these behemoths Microsoft will be able to sell.

Microsoft previously said it would roll out the device via a "phased introduction with two unique experiences".

The 2X module will run Microsoft 365 - Microsoft's bundle of Windows 10, Office 365, and Enterprise Management + Security.

Surface Hub 2S is also a product built of compromise. It's believed the Surface Hub 2X will be based on the Windows Core OS and "Aruba" Surface Hub shell.
