FCC ID: 2ALBB-A11 FCC Report on Essential PH-1

FCC-SAR-Report-Essential-Smartphone-PH-1-SAR-LevelsAccording to test reports filed with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) for the Essential PH-1 Smartphone is 0.28 watts per kilogram (w/kg) at your head, and 0.76 W/kg when worn on your body. The Essential PH-1 hotspot SAR is 0.70 W/kg. The SAR for simultaneous transmission (cellular plus Wi-Fi) for the Essential PH-1 is 0.92 W/kg.

All SAR levels reported to the FCC are averaged over one gram of body tissue corresponding to the maximum allowable level of 1.6 w/kg. Currently, the Essential PH-1 is only available on Sprint’s network. However, SAR levels will vary depending upon your specific cell phone carrier (e.g., AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, or Verizon).

It’s important to know the minimum separation distance for body-worn testing was 10 mm, that requires a smartphone user to maintain slightly more than 3/8 inch minimum separation (10 mm = 0.39 in) for SAR safety compliance.
