The Microsoft Surface Hub 2 builds off the original but features design elements that make it more effective in the workplace. The original Surface Hub first launched in 2016 and came equipped with a 1080p 55-inch display as well 4K 84-inch options. While these were, and still are impressive, the updated Surface Hub utilizes a 50.5-inch display with a greater than 4K resolution, 3:2 aspect ratio and extremely thin bezels. The new Surface Hub 2 also features a rotation ability that allows the screen to be used in both portrait and landscape mode.
In terms of software, the new Surface Hub uses Windows 10, but Microsoft is also applying a new dynamic collaboration scenario into the device. This feature will allow multiple users to interact with the Surface Hub 2 and login using a built-in fingerprint reader. The device will also come equipped with far-field microphones and 4K cameras to ensure high-quality video calls.
