According to a new report by Brad Sams, Microsoft may have canceled or postponed the release of the Surface Hub 2X digital whiteboard. After releasing the first-generation Surface Hub in 2015, the company launched the Surface Hub 2 in May 2018 and updated the Surface Hub 2S model last year. The Surface Hub 2S is scheduled to go on sale in 2019, while the Surface Hub 2X is scheduled to go on sale in 2020.

However, Sams quoted people familiar with the matter as saying: “Microsoft has cancelled or significantly delayed the arrival of the Surface Hub 2X, and probably will not release it as previously announced.”
One potential reason for this may be that windows Core OS is not developing as well as expected, causing the project to be delayed overall.
In addition, Microsoft has removed other information related to Surface Hub 2X from YouTube and the official website.
Back in December, Zac Bowden of Windows Central reported that Surface Hub 2X was released with Windows 10 X.
Windows 10X is a new operating system developed by Microsoft for Surface Neo and other dual-screen PCs, but Sams didn’t confirm this today.
