Microsoft is preparing to launch the Surface Hub 2 in the first half of the year. The company today confirmed that they are working on a new version of their conferencing system.
“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,” (via ZDNet)
While Microsoft will probably unveil the Surface Hub 2 this year, they might not start shipping the device until late 2018 or even 2019. At the moment, we don’t know a lot about Surface Hub 2.
Nevertheless, Microsoft is working on an optimized version of Microsoft Teams for the Surface Hub. Furthermore, a new Surface Hub could also add Cortana integration, automatic transcription and advanced scheduling capabilities to the conference room.
I am really excited about Surface Hub 2. The device might not be that interesting for consumers but seeing how the conference room of the future could look like, should be fascinating.
