Microsoft ends support for Surface Hub 55 and 84
The Surface Hub 55 and 84 are two products that Microsoft launched seven years ago as a digital collaboration tools for businesses and schools. Its positioning is similar to a huge-screen tablet computer, and the suffix number indicates its screen size, 55 means it is equipped with a 55-inch display screen, and 84 means it is equipped with an 84-inch display screen. According to Neowin reports, Microsoft announced that the two Surface devices stopped support on November 30, after which they will no longer provide new firmware and drivers to these two devices, but will provide operating system updates.
The Surface Hub 55 and 84 run a customized version of Windows 10 called Windows 10 Team, powered by Intel’s fourth-generation Core i7/i5 processors. It can be learned that Windows 11 no longer supports these processors. In addition, the 84-inch model is equipped with a 4K resolution, and 120Hz refresh rate display. The smaller 55-inch model is equipped with a 1080P resolution and 120Hz refresh rate display. The display supports multi-touch up to 100 points and simultaneous input from three Surface Pen.
As a 2015 product, the Surface Hub 55 and 84 have good configurations and features, so the price is not cheap. At the time, the Surface Hub 84 was priced at $19,999. Despite the high price, Surface Hub’s market demand at the time still exceeded Microsoft’s expectations. Subsequently, Microsoft continued to launch a new generation of Surface Hub 2S and 2X, but Surface Hub 2X was subsequently canceled in 2020, leaving the Surface Hub 2S and some accessories. Whether Microsoft will launch the third-generation Surface Hub in the future is still unknown.
