Back in September 2018, Microsoft officially announced the Surface Hub 2S and Surface Hub 2X. While recent reports suggest that the Surface Hub 2X is cancelled, the Hub 2S is now available for purchase in India.
Today, Microsoft announced the availability of Surface Hub 2S in India. Priced at 11,89,999 INR (~$15,780), Surface Hub 2S comes with Surface Hub 2 Camera and a Surface Hub 2 Pen and will be available via authorized Hub resellers. The Steelcase Roam mobile stand, on the other hand, is priced at INR 1,17,500 (~$1,550) and it will also be available via the authorized Hub resellers.
Rajiv Sodhi, COO of Microsoft India said:
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.
The Surface Hub 2S is designed to provide the same experience as the first Surface Hub, but in a "lighter, thinner, and more vibrant design". It offers a 4K+ 50-inch multi-touch display and 40% lighter and offers 50% faster graphics performance than the original Surface Hub. The camera at the top offers a 4K resolution and 90-degree horizontal field of view.
