If the function key is pressed three times in quick succession, the Samsung sends an emergency text message to the previously defined emergency contacts, including at least the approximate location and, if desired, pictures (from front/main camera) and a 5-second audio recording.

Note: The emergency SMS is not to be seen as a replacement for an official emergency call and serves only as quick information for the emergency contacts!
