Today's most effective businesses have a team-based, collaborative culture and place an emphasis on enabling creativity and productivity. The original Surface Hub 2 came out back in 2016 and it had a 55 inch 1080p display as well as an option for an 84 inch 4K display. It should be noted that we don't have a full list of specs at this time, the company is still working on finalizing the hardware which means they aren't ready to share the weight or internal specs of the display but this early look at the hardware will certainly raise a few eyebrows. That aspect ratio is much taller than what you find on a TV or most projectors, which makes it appear more natural when you use the Surface Hub's rotating wall mount to pivot it to portrait mode. Microsoft's Surface Hub 2 features Dynamic Rotation, which lets users rotate the device to portrait or landscape for the best view and usability, and the rotating experience is simply attractive. That might seem like a gimmick at first glance, but it makes sense given Microsoft's bigger vision. As for the hub itself, Microsoft says it'll begin testing with select commercial customers this year ahead of general availability in 2019.

Microsoft's Surface team is obsessed with hinges. "The new Surface Hub 2 is sleeker, more agile and more affordable to fit any workspace or work style", explained Panas Panay, chief product officer in a blog. "The gorgeous 4K+ 50.5" multi-touch display creates an inviting canvas to co-create, harnessing the power of Microsoft Teams, Microsoft Whiteboard, Office 365, Windows 10 and the intelligent cloud. You'll need to plug a webcam above the display to start video conferences. It runs Windows 10 and supports the Surface Pen.

Microsoft is trying to push the needle when it comes to computers. It's also not clear what sort of smarts Microsoft will be able to add to the Hub 2, when it's a feature update or two behind-remember, the original didn't even ship with Cortana enabled. "We'll have more to talk about [that device] this fall".
