Microsoft reveals bigger 85-inch Surface Hub 2 model

Microsoft is creating an even bigger version of its new Surface Hub 2 hardware. At a press event in New York City today, the software maker is revealing a bigger 85-inch Surface Hub 2 model. Unlike the smaller 50-inch version, this bigger model has a 16:9 display that’s more in line with the original Surface Hub. Microsoft is using a 3:2 aspect ratio on its new 50-inch Surface Hub 2S.

While the smaller Surface Hub 2 will be able to be tiled with up to four 50-inch panels side-by-side, this bigger 85-inch model is designed for businesses that are looking for something even bigger. Surface chief Panos Panay introduced the new 85-inch model today, and briefly showed it sandwiched between two of the 50-inch versions. Microsoft isn’t providing exact pricing for this bigger Surface Hub 2 model, only that it will ship at some point in 2020.

Microsoft will make an upgrade cartridge available (Surface Hub 2X), that will improve the CPU, RAM, and GPU of the Surface Hub 2 and update it to a newer operating system. Features like rotation and the tiling of four Surface Hub 2 displays will also be enabled with this 2X cartridge. You can read our full hands-on with the Surface Hub 2 for more information.
