Microsoft is working on Surface Hub 2
Microsoft first revealed the Surface Hub in January 2015, although it didn’t start shipping the mammoth collaborative toolset until March 2016 after initial delay.
Despite the fact that the last significant Surface Hub news came five months ago, Microsoft today is building momentum around version two in a surprise pre-announcement:
Surface Hub created an entirely new device category, and we’re thrilled with the strong momentum we have seen across the globe. We’re working on V2 and will share more in the first half of this year.
This announcement is one of the first times Microsoft is not only acknowledging a new version of the Surface Hub, but it’s also well ahead of any planned press-event or shipping details.
Coming in two sizes – 55-inch and 84-inch, priced at $6,999 and $19,999 respectively – Microsoft is giving current companies a small heads-up that a new version is on the way so they can begin planning around the tools and ecosystem (and budgeting).
There is no word on what specifically will be new in Surface Hub V2, but refreshed hardware, improved display, inking and things like Microsoft Teams support on the software front are expected.
