SAR Information

Your mobile device is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed not to exceed the limits for exposure to radio waves (radio frequency electromagnetic fields), recommended by international guidelines from the independent scientific organization ICNIRP. These guidelines incorporate substantial safety margins assure the protection of all persons regardless of age and health. The exposure guidelines are based on the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR), which is an expression of the amount of radio frequency (RF) power deposited in the head or body when the device is transmitting.

To send data or messages, a good connection to the network is needed. Sending may be delayed until such a connection is available. Follow the separation distance instructions until the sending is finished. During general use, the SAR values are usually well below the values stated above. This is because, for purposes of system efficiency and to minimise interference on the network, the operating power of your mobile is automatically decreased when full power is not needed for the call. The lower the power output, the lower the SAR value.

Device models may have different versions and more than one value. Each device contains a version number also known as a TA-number. The TA-number is either mentioned on the back of the device or on the device underneath the battery, if the device contains a removable battery. Component and design changes may occur over time and some changes could affect SAR values. The latest available SAR information for this and other Nokia device models can be found at

Important User Information

  • Differences in build version mean some device models have more than one value.
  • The SAR value given is the latest available information for the device model you select. Manufacturing variations mean that the value may have changed since your device was built.
  • Please refer to the User Guide provided with your original device packaging for SAR information about your actual device.
