Build 2020: HoloLens 2 is coming to the Microsoft Store and additional markets later this year

Microsoft is continuing to roll out its HoloLens 2 to more countries this year. The company first started shipping the new headset in November in select markets (Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Ireland, New Zealand, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States), continuing to focus on developers and enterprise customers instead of general consumers.

This morning, the Redmond giant announced that HoloLens 2 will be available in 15 new markets in Fall 2020, including the Netherlands, Switzerland, Spain, Austria, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Denmark, Belgium, Portugal, Poland, Singapore, South Korea, Hong Kong and Taiwan. Moreover, HoloLens 2 will also be available to purchase directly from the Microsoft Store in Summer 2020, along with Surface devices, Xbox consoles, and other Microsoft products and accessories.

HoloLens 2 may not get much exposure these days, but the mixed reality headset still has no real competition on the market. The device is currently priced at $3,500, but customers can also get the Development Edition at $99 per month with free trials of Unity software and Azure credits for cloud services. If you’re interested in HoloLens 2, we also invite you to register for the free Mixed Reality Dev Days digital event on May 21-22.
