The device features a vibrant 4K+ 50-inch multi-touch display that offers an excellent canvas for co-creating with the best touch and pen experience, as well as the highest resolution when compared to other devices in the same class & category.

“We’ve expanded our Surface family to include not just devices designed for individuals, but also devices purpose-built for teams. In view of the current environment and more teams working remotely, the Surface Hub 2S seamlessly blends into any workspace. The Surface Hub 2S gives teams the mobility and flexibility to collaborate where they work best – whether in a conventional meeting scenario for brainstorms, or virtual meetings powered by Microsoft Teams. For businesses looking to bridge the gap and address different workstyles, the Surface Hub 2S is the perfect addition to enhance productivity, and as a boost to turn innovative ideas to reality,” said Rajiv Sodhi, COO, Microsoft India.
Surface Hub 2S is designed to fit into all types of spaces, from compact spaces to the traditional conference rooms.

It takes the shared screen as well as transforms it to create an innovative mobile computer, designed for teams. The device also comes with the smallest bezels and the thinnest edge in its class, providing a seamless work environment. In fact, Surface Hub 2S’s display is 60% thinner when compared to its predecessor.
