FCC Notice

The device may cause TV or radio interference if used in close proximity to receiving equipment. The FCC can require you to stop using the mobile device if such interference cannot be eliminated.
Information about the RF exposure from FCC
In August 1996, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) of the United States, with its action in Report and Order FCC 96-326, adopted an updated safety standard for human exposure to radio frequency (RF) electromagnetic energy emitted by FCC-regulated transmitters. Those guidelines are consistent with the safety standard previously set by both international and U.S. standards. The design of this phone complies with FCC guidelines and these international standards.
Body effects
For body operation, this device has been tested and meets FCC RF exposure guidelines when used with any accessory that contains no metal and which provides a minimum separation distance of 0 mm between this device and the body of the user. The use of other accessories may not ensure compliance with FCC RF exposure guidelines. The use of other accessories may not ensure compliance with FCC RF exposure guidelines.
Class B Compliance under article 15 of the FCC This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the condition that this device does not cause harmful interference. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) this device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.
Caution The user is cautioned that changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.
Some content may differ from your device depending on the region, service provider, or software version, and is subject to change without prior notice.

Follow the warnings below to prevent incidents, such as fires or explosions, injuries, or damage to the device

  • Do not expose the device to physical impact or damage.
  • Use only Samsung-approved batteries, chargers, and cables specifically designed for your device.
  • Prevent the multipurpose jack and battery terminals from coming into contact with foreign materials such as metal, liquids, or dust.
  • If any part of the device, such as the glass or acrylic body, is broken, smokes, or emits a burning odor, stop using the device immediately. Use the device again only after it has been repaired at a Samsung Service Centre.
  • Do not turn on or use the device when the battery compartment is exposed.
  • Do not disassemble or reuse the battery.
  • Do not allow children or animals to chew or suck the device.
  • The device can be used in locations with an ambient temperature of 0 °C to 35 °C. You can store the device at an ambient temperature of -20 °C to 50 °C. Using or storing the device outside of the recommended temperature ranges may damage the device or reduce the battery’s lifespan.
  • Do not use your device in a hot environment or near a fire.
  • Comply with all safety warnings and regulations regarding mobile device usage while operating a vehicle.

Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) certification information
Your device conforms to U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) 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 exposure level (known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR) of 1.6 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.
This device complies with part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.
The FCC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this model device based on the compliance of all reported SAR levels with the FCC RF exposure guidelines. Some devices are required to receive approval from the FCC. If your device required FCC approval, you can view the FCC certification by opening Settings About phone
