Samsung Galaxy S9 - SAR Levels

FCC SAR Levels

  • FCC Approval Date This is the date the phone SAR test was completed before the phone's release to the public as required by law.
    11 January 2018
  • FCC ID The FCC ID is the code used to register a device for FCC compliance
    A3LSMG960U
  • FCC Report Link A direct link to the FCC's website for confirming SAR levels that are listed on our website - We did the homework for you!
  • US SAR Ratings USA Legal Limit is 1.6 W/kg
    Minimum Separation Distance for Galaxy S9 is 15mm - USA Legal Limit is 1.6 W/kg - FCC SAR testing is measured in watts per kilogram (or W/kg) averaged over ONE gram of simulated biological tissue. It is a well known FACT SAR testing was not designed for protecting women or children from harmful radiation exposure, and SAR Test do not take into consideration health effects below thermal levels
  • Head SAR Level SAR test when held against your head when only using cellular service. Wifi and other transmitter are NOT active
    0.35 W/kg
  • Body SAR Level SAR test when held against your body only using cellular service. Wifi and other transmitter are NOT active
    0.96 W/kg
  • Simultaneous Transmission The highest possible SAR recorded with ALL transmitters active, Cellular, WiFi, and Hotspot
    1.59 W/kg - Hotspot Active
  • Simultaneous Head The highest possible SAR test when held against your HEAD with cellular and WiFi transmitters active,
    1.25 W/kg
  • Simultaneous Body The highest possible SAR test when held against your BODY with cellular and WiFi transmitters active,
    1.59 W/kg
  • Hotspot SAR The highest possible SAR test when held against your BODY using the phone as a hotspot with cellular and WiFi transmitters active,
    0.95 W/kg

EU SAR Level

  • EU SAR Ratings
    European Legal Limit is 2.0 W/kg - EU SAR testing is measured in watts per kilogram (or W/kg) averaged over TEN grams of simulated biological tissue.
  • Head SAR Level
    0.32 W/kg
  • Body SAR Level
    1.27 W/kg

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.
