Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus SAR test reports filed with the Federal Communications Commission FCCID A3LSMG965U — the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) for this Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus is 0.36 watts per kilogram (w/kg) at your head, and 0.79 w/kg when worn on your body. The Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus hotspot SAR is 1.04 w/kg and its SAR for simultaneous transmission (cellular, Wi-Fi) for this Samsung Galaxy S9 is 1.14 w/kg at your head, 1.48 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 S9 and Galaxy 9 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 S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus 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 to ensure SAR safety compliance.
