Although Samsung is still currently trying to sort out its Galaxy Note 7 crisis and the recent Galaxy S7 Edge fiery issues, the tech giant is ready to continue doing business and restore American consumer confidence with its latest offering: the Galaxy Tab A 10.1.

Samsung’s new tablet computer will be made available in the US on Friday. The Galaxy Tab A features a somewhat larger and better high definition display than the previous model. It also comes with Samsung’s own S Pen stylus, somehow making it the Galaxy Note 7’s big brother.

The 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab A’s new 1200x1920 WUXGA resolution is powered by the Exynos 7870 octa-core processor with 3 GB of RAM. The internal storage is 16 GB, with external memory support for up to 256 GB. The 8-megapixel primary camera has autofocus and LED flash, while the 2-megapixel front-facing secondary camera is good for selfies as well as 1080p videos. Samsung says the 1.22-pound tablet’s battery can last up to 14 hours of Web surfing. And yes, the 3.5 mm headphone jack is there so there is no need for third-party adapters.

The Galaxy Tab A comes in two colours: pearl white and metallic black. An LTE version of the tablet is currently not available. Android Nougat enthusiasts will also have to wait for an update from Samsung since the Tab A is running on Marshmallow 6.0.

The Galaxy Tab A will have a price tag of US$349.99 and will be made available at the Samsung US official online shop and select stores. In Australia, it retails for AU$449.

Samsung is trying to get back on its feet and regain lost fans and revenue following the Galaxy Note 7’s recall and its eventual discontinuation. The recent reports regarding the Galaxy S7 Edge supposedly bursting into flames only add more salt to the electronics giant’s wounds.
