Radio wave exposure and Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) information:
The handset is designed to comply with safely, requirements for exposure to
radio waves. This requirement is based on scientific guidelines that include
safety margins designed to assure the safety of all persons, regardless of
age and health.
The radio wave exposure guidelines employ a unit of measurement known
as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. Tests for SAR are conducted using
a standardized method with the phone transmitting at its highest certified
power level in all used frequency bands.
While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various ZTE
phone models, they are all designed to meet the relevant guidelines for
exposure to radio waves.
The SAR limit recommended by the International Commission on NonIonizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) is 2.0 W/kg averaged over ten (10)
grams of tissue.
The highest SAR value for this model phone tested for use at the ear is 0.935
W/kg (10g).
