Surface Hub 2S harnesses the intelligent cloud to unlock the productivity of teams

Microsoft launches Surface Hub 2S
The company will begin testing the Surface Hub 2S 85-inch with select customers in early 2020.

Microsoft unveiled the new Surface Hub 2S, bringing battery-enabled mobility and collaboration to the 50-inch device. The company also announced addition of an 85-inch version to the Surface Hub family.  

"Surface Hub 2S is a product built to engage and empower teams by bridging digital and physical workspaces, because how we work continues to evolve every day." Said Panos Panay, Chief Product Officer, Microsoft Corporation. "Not so long ago, the emphasis was on individual productivity. Today that's changed - the situations we face at work are more complex and solving them requires a variety of skillsets and knowledge."

Surface Hub 2S connects the complete tools of Microsoft - Windows 10, Microsoft Teams, Office 365, Microsoft Whiteboard and the cloud to deliver productivity and enable teams to work in new ways. The new device packs more performance into a thinner, lighter design. Forty percent lighter than its predecessor, and with a 60 percent thinner display, Surface Hub 2S fits into any space - from a traditional conference room to a compact huddle space.

The 4K+ 50-inch multi-touch display offers a canvas to co-create with the solid class ‘pen and touch experience' the Surface is known for and the highest resolution compared to any device in its class. It also offers 50 percent faster graphics performance than the original Surface Hub.

"At Microsoft, we've been working on this - empowering people to achieve more, together. We've evolved Office into a collaborative suite that lets you work together in real-time from any device. We've introduced Microsoft Teams to create one, secure place for teams to access all the tools they need to do their work and added new innovations and enhanced AI to Microsoft Whiteboard. We've expanded our Surface family of devices to include not just devices designed for individuals, but also devices purpose-built for teamwork." Added Panay.

Surface Hub 2S, priced at $8,999.99 will start shipping in the U.S in June this year and expand availability into additional markets shortly thereafter. The company will also begin testing the Surface Hub 2S 85-inch with select customers in early 2020.
