About SAR of F-09A
FCC and IC RF Exposure Information
This model phone meets the U.S. Government’s and Canadian Government’s requirements for exposure to radio waves. This model phone contains a radio transmitter and receiver. This model phone is designed and manufactured not to exceed the emission limits for exposure to radio frequency (RF) energy as set by the FCC of the U.S. Government and IC of the Canadian Government.
These limits are part of comprehensive guidelines and establish permitted levels of RF energy for the general population. The guidelines are based on standards that were developed by independent scientific organizations through periodic and thorough evaluation of scientific studies.
The exposure standard for wireless mobile phones employs a unit of measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR). The SAR limit set by the FCC and IC is 1.6 W/kg. Tests for SAR are conducted using standard operating positions as accepted by the FCC and IC with the phone transmitting at its highest certified power level in all tested frequency bands. Although the SAR is determined at the highest certified power level, the actual SAR level of the phone while operating can be well below the maximum value. This is because the phone is designed to operate at multiple power levels so as to use only the power required to reach the network. In general, the closer you are to a wireless base station antenna, the lower the power output level of the phone.
Before a phone model is available for sale to the public, it must be tested and certified to prove to the FCC and IC that it does not exceed the limit established by the U.S. and Canadian government-adopted requirement for safe exposure. The tests are performed on position and locations (for example, at the ear and worn on the body) as required by FCC and IC for each model. The highest SAR value for this model phone as reported to the FCC and IC, when tested for use at the ear, is 0.266W/kg, and when worn on the body, is 0.527W/kg. (Body-worn measurements differ among phone models, depending upon available accessories and FCC and IC requirements).
While there may be differences between the SAR levels of various phones and at various positions, they all meet the U.S. and Canadian government requirements. The FCC and IC has granted an Equipment Authorization for this model phone with all reported SAR levels evaluated as in compliance with the FCC and IC RF exposure guidelines. SAR information on this model phone is on file with the FCC and can be found under the Equipment Authorization Search section at http://www.fcc.gov/oet/ (please search on FCC ID VQK-F09A).
For body worn operation, this phone has been tested and meets the FCC and IC RF exposure guidelines when used with an accessory designated for this product or when used with an accessory that contains no metal and which positions the handset at a minimum distance of 1.5 cm from the body.
* In the United States and Canada, the SAR limit for wireless mobile phones used by the general public is 1.6 Watts/kg (W/kg), averaged over one gram of tissue. SAR values may vary depending upon national reporting requirements and the network band.
