Surface Hub 2S is a Microsoft device that is intended for collaborative work in meetings. It combines several features, including a digital whiteboard and video conferencing, and comes with integrated Teams, Skype and OneNote software. The large 50-inch screen has a definition of 4K (3840 × 2560 pixels) and features a touch-sensitive surface that works with fingers or with a stylus. Under the hood, there's an 8th generation Core i5 processor, 8GB RAM and 128GB SSD storage. This may seem a little thin, but the Surface Hub 2 software is not designed to store data locally. To support video conferencing, it comes with a network of eight microphones, front speakers and a removable 4K camera. Surface Hub 2S will be available in the US starting in June for 9,000 USD (12,045 CAD). Later in the year, Microsoft will also start selling Surface Hub 2 with Windows 10 Pro or Enterprise, which will mean trading Surface Hub's special user-interface for any Win32 application.

Ars Technica, “50-inch Surface Hub 2S: $8,999, shipping in June; 85-inch version next year.”
