According to test reports filed with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the Samsung Galaxy s9 model numbers SMG960U SMG960U1 SMG960W and SMG960XU list the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) values for the Samsung Galaxy S9 as 0.35 watts per kilogram (w/kg) at your head, and 0.96 w/kg when worn on your body. The Samsung Galaxy S9 hotspot SAR is 0.95 w/kg. The SAR for simultaneous transmission (cellular plus Wi-Fi) for the Samsung Galaxy S9 is 1.25 w/kg at your head, 1.59 w/kg when worn on the body, and 1.59 w/kg when used as a hotspot simultaneously with all other transmitters active.

All SAR levels reported to the FCC are averaged over one gram of body tissue corresponding to the maximum allowable level of 1.6 w/kg. The SAR levels will vary depending upon your specific cell phone carrier (e.g., AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, or Verizon).

The minimum separation distance for head and body-worn testing was 5 mm.  That means the phone should never be closer than 5mm to your body when in use.
