Specic Absorption Rate (SAR) certication information
Your device conforms to European Union (EU) standards that
limit human exposure to radio frequency (RF) energy emitted
by radio and telecommunications equipment. These standards
prevent the sale of mobile devices that exceed a maximum
of 2.0 W/kg.
During testing, the maximum SAR recorded for this model was
0.562 W/kg. In normal use, the actual SAR is likely to be much
lower, as the device has been designed to emit only the RF
energy necessary to transmit a signal to the nearest base station.
By automatically emitting lower levels when possible, your device
reduces your overall exposure to RF energy.
The Declaration of Conformity statement at the back of this
manual demonstrates your device’s compliance with the
European Radio & Terminal Telecommunications Equipment
(R&TTE) directive. For more information about the SAR and
related EU standards, visit the Samsung website
