You probably wouldn’t guess it, but Microsoft’s most popular Surface product in enterprise is its gargantuan Surface Hub. With 5,000 companies in 25 countries owning one or more Hubs, the company has, unsurprisingly, announced plans to introduce a sequel later this year. What isn’t clear at this stage is whether the starting price of US$21,999 for the 55-inch model (there is also an 84-inch variant), will change.

Effectively a giant Windows 10 touchscreen PC with a unique UI, the Surface Hub is typically mounted on meeting room walls, but can be set up as a table top interface. It is designed to work with Windows 10 Ink as well, and allows users to collaborate more effectively in meetings including interacting with other teams using a Surface Hub remotely. Effectively a new product category, Microsoft is keen to build on its momentum with a hardware refresh.

While the new models will inevitably pick up hardware upgrades, Microsoft is also currently working on upgrading the Surface Hub 2 UI. The company expects that most of these upgrades will work on existing Surface Hubs, including the integration of Microsoft Teams. In making a limited announcement about the new product now, Microsoft says that it is giving companies time to forward allocate their budgets. More details are expected in the coming months.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
