The Surface Hub 2 can 'tile' four units into one big display

The Redmond giant is not immediately sharing any pricing details and says it will begin testing the Surface Hub 2 with select commercial customers in 2018, with it being made available for purchase in 2019.

Coming in at 50.5-inch with a 4K+ display, the new Surface Hub 2 boasts a lovely design with tiny bezels that offer an immersive collaboration experience. The Microsoft Surface Hub 2 also features a 4K webcam (which is removable and rotatable) and far-field microphones for a better video calling experience. The Surface Hub 2's specially engineered hinge allows it to spin 0 to 90 degrees while dynamically adjusting the orientation of content on the screen.

There's also a new touch button on the side of the display, which looks like it'll wake the device, then give you access to a new menu system, not seen in Windows 10 before, specifically built for the Surface Hub. Microsoft will likely share more information before launch, which is expected sometime in 2019.

Dynamic Collaboration is a new feature that lets two team members actively collaborate on the same project at once using one Surface Hub 2 device. Making products stronger through collaboration, whether they're in the same room or separated by thousands of miles. So it'll look and act like one massive Surface tablet. This spells out to something around $5000 - one-fourth of the Surface Hub's price tag. "That's why Microsoft today is announcing Surface Hub 2, designed from the ground up to get people engaged - to get out of their seats, create and dynamically collaborate as a team, regardless of location". The original Hubs cost $8,999 for the 55-inch version and $21,999 for the 84-inch version. Microsoft has worked with Steelcase to create a system of rolling stands and mounts. An intriguing aspect about this collaborative digital whiteboard is that it is now able to rotate from landscape to portrait mode.

Like every other Nokia smartphone, the Nokia 6 is also expected to offer a micro SD card slot for additional storage expansion. Having said that, Nokia X6 when it comes to India will compete against the likes of phones like Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro.

According to him, the new device will be easy to set up and work instantly as you walk into the room. The device will enable businesses to take advantage of all Microsoft's core business applications such as Teams, Microsft Whiteboard, Office 365 and to name a few with the power of Windows 10.

The resolution is higher than 4k which means that there shouldn't be any issue with clarity when standing up close to the hardware.

"It's unreal", Seiler said.
