Tests for SAR are conducted using standard operating positions
guidelines for this device model are:
Maximum SAR for this model and conditions under which it
Head SAR 0.873 W/kg
Body-worn SAR 0.352 W/kg
During use, the actual SAR values for this device are usually well
below the values stated above. This is because, for purposes of
operating power of your mobile device is automatically decreased
when full power is not needed for the call. The lower the power
output of the device, the lower its SAR value.
A body-worn SAR test has been performed on this device with an
approved accessory or at a separation distance of 1.5 cm. To meet
RF exposure guidelines during body-worn operation, the device must
be used with the approved accessory or positioned at least 1.5 cm
away from the body. If you use an unapproved accessory, ensure
that the accessory does not contain any metal components and that
it positions the device at least 1.5 cm away from the body.
Organisations such as the World Health Organisation and the US
Food and Drug Administration have suggested that if people are
concerned and want to reduce their exposure, they could use a
hands-free accessory to keep the wireless device away from the
