"In 2018, we will begin to test 2 with select commercial customers. It will be available for purchase in 2019," he added.

The new device is on and its "multi-user sign in" feature will allow many people to log into it using the built-in fingerprint sensor.

Additionally, "Surface Hub 2" will come with options like "Tiling," that would display multiple pieces of content side-by-side, Microsoft Whiteboard, Office 365, 4K cameras, integrated speakers and far field mic.

Microsoft's "Surface Hub" was introduced in 2016 in two sizes, 55 and 84-inches with 4K resolution at $8,999 and $21,999, respectively.
