Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus SAR test reports filed with the Federal Communications Commission FCCID A3LSMG955F — the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) for this Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus is 0.41 watts per kilogram (w/kg) at your head, and 0.97 w/kg when worn on your body. The Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus hotspot SAR is 1.10 w/kg and its SAR for simultaneous transmission (cellular, Wi-Fi) for this Samsung Galaxy S8 is 1.52 w/kg at your head, 1.21 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 for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy 8 Plus to the FCC are averaged over one gram of body tissue corresponding to the maximum allowable level of 1.6 w/kg.

SAR levels will vary depending upon your specific cell phone carrier (e.g., AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, or Verizon).

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy 8 Plus minimum separation distance for body-worn testing is 15 mm, that requires a smartphone user to maintain over 1/2 inch minimum separation (15 mm = 0.59 in) to ensure SAR safety compliance.
