SAR values of Nokia phones still among the lowest in the industry

The German Federal Office for Radiation Protection (Bundesamt für Strahlenschutz) has a detailed database of all the SAR values of the devices present at the German market.

The SAR values, or Specific Absorption Rate, are measured on the ear and body and are determined by those FCC tests in the accredited laboratories around the world.
It is good to know that the SAR values of some of the latest Nokia smartphones are still among the lowest in the industry. Statista updated its infographics of the phones that are emitting the most and the least radiation, and Nokia phones are still at the bottom of the list. For example, Nokia 3.2 is emitting just 0.24 watts per kilogram which is 0.05 more than Samsung Galaxy Note 10 +.

It is good to see that the veterans of the smartphone industry like Samsung, LG and Nokia are at the bottom of the list, while Chinese manufacturers Xiaomi and OnePlus are at the top of the list. There are also some other well-valued brands like Google, Sony, Apple, and HTC, whose phones are surprisingly emitting a lot of radiation on the ear. But, all those emissions are below the maximum allowed 2W/kg, which is considered to be safe for the user.
German BfS updated the data with the phone models released till August, but some new Nokia models like Nokia 210, Nokia 105, Nokia 220 4G, and all the IFA2019 lineup, are still missing. Here is the chart showing the SAR values of the Nokia phones announced at MWC2019.

We can say that HMD is still doing a great job of making Nokia phones safe. Well, they did license all the Nokia’s antenna patents, so the low SAR values isn’t a surprise. After all, Nokia is (was) a veteran in the mobile phone industry.

Here you can find the SAR values of some previous Nokia models we covered in February 2019.
