A new 85-inch variant of Microsoft’s Surface Hub 2S digital whiteboard is now available for enterprise customers. It follows the original 84” Surface Hub that the company launched in 2015, as well as the 50” Surface Hub 2S released in 2019.
If the original 84” Surface Hub was the largest Surface device Microsoft ever made, the 85” Surface Hub 2S is slightly smaller as the company eliminated the wings and reduced the bezels by 45%. Weight has also been reduced by 30% to 210 lbs, though unboxing such a massive device is still quite a process, as you can see in the video below.
The 85” Surface Hub 2S comes with a 4K PixelSense display with anti-glare that supports up to 20 simultaneous touch points. The digital whiteboard comes with a quad-core Intel Core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM, and a 128 GB SSD, and it ships with the Windows 10 Teams 2020 Update. If this OS is secure by design and supports Microsoft Store apps, customers can replace it with Windows 10 Pro and Enterprise to use it the Surface Hub 2S as a regular Windows 10 PC.
The 85" Surface Hub 2 will start shipping later this month, but it's available for pre-order today from various authorized resellers with prices starting at $21,999. Microsoft's Windows blog seems to have some issues this month, but you can find more information about the 85" Surface Hub 2S on the Surface IT Pro blog.
