Your mobile device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed not to exceed the limits for
exposure to radio waves recommended by international guidelines. These guidelines were developed by the independent scientific organization
ICNIRP and include safety margins designed to
assure the protection of all persons, regardless
of age and health.
The guidelines use a unit of measurement known
as Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR
limit for mobile devices is 2 W/kg and the highest
SAR value for this device when tested was 0.694
W/kg. As mobile devices offer a range of functions, they can be used in other positions, such
as on the body.
As SAR is measured utilizing the device’s highest
transmitting power, the actual SAR of this device
while operating is typically below that indicated
above. This is due to automatic changes to the
power level of the device to ensure it only uses
the minimum power required to communicate
with the network.
