This is the SAR value of the Samsung Galaxy S20, S20+ or S20 Ultra

The SAR value is used to measure the specific absorption rate in a smartphone such as the Samsung Galaxy S20, S20+ or S20 Ultra. A distinction is made between head and body.

It is measured how high the absorbed radiation through the body is in W/kg. W stands for Watt, i.e. the power, and kg, for the weight of the body tissue.


The higher the value, the more critical for your own health. Even though there are no long-term studies on the SAR value for smartphones, it is recommended that the value does not exceed 2W/kg.

If you now want to know how high the SAR value is for the Samsung Galaxy S20, S20+ or S20 Ultra, then we have the right values for you here:

Model: Samsung Galaxy S20

  • SAR value head: 0.279 W/kg
  • SAR value body: 1,525 W/kg

Model: Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus (+)

  • SAR value head: : 0.376 W/kg
  • SAR value body: 1.57 W/kg

Model: Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra

  • SAR value head: 0.139 W/kg
  • SAR value body: 1,557 W/kg

The SAR values of the smartphones are all below the limit and can therefore be used without great concern. Nevertheless, it is always advisable to choose a smartphone that has the lowest possible SAR value.
