Microsoft to hold a Surface Hub event in NYC on April 17

| |

It’s been almost a year since Microsoft unveiled the Surface Hub 2, the successor to its digital whiteboard for businesses. The software giant set a 2019 release date for the next-gen device last year, and The Verge is reporting today that the company will hold a Surface Hub event in NYC on April 17.

As we learned last year, Microsoft first plans to launch a Surface Hub 2S in Q2 2019, which will be upgradable to the Microsoft 365-powered Surface Hub 2X in 2020. For business who want to upgrade, the process will be all done through to a new removable cartridge model.

The Surface Hub 2S that will ship this year will come with a 4K+ 50.5” multi-touch display at 3:2 aspect ratio, 4K cameras, as well as integrated speakers, far-field mic arrays and a new Surface Pen. Compared to the first generation Surface Hub, the new models will also come with a new hinge allowing the device to rotate between landscape and portrait mode.

We don’t know the date for this new Microsoft event in April yet, but the company should make it official very soon. After the company revealed its HoloLens 2 Mixed Reality headset at MWC last month, we hope that this won't be the last hardware event for Microsoft in 2019.
