Google Pixel 6A Safety Tip: Turning Off Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Reduces Radiation.
This SAR chart reveals how turning off Wi-Fi and Bluetooth on your Google Pixel 6A can significantly reduce your exposure to radiation. Our SAR comparison chart shows that by simply turning off these transmitters, you can lower the RF radiation exposure to your head by 30.3%, and you can lower exposure to the body by 20.2%, when considering these differences between cellular-only (Wi-Fi/Bluetooth OFF) and simultaneous use exposure (Wi-Fi/Bluetooth ON), a wise way to reduce excessive phone radiation is to tap off unnecessary transmitters when not in use. Additionally, when using your phone as a hotspot, turning off Bluetooth can reduce your exposure by up to 58.9% according to the FCC SAR report for device number A4RGB62Z.
Google Pixel 6A SAR Levels
|RADIATION LEVELS||CELLULAR ONLY||(% DIFF)||SIMULTANEOUS|
|HEAD||1.10 W/kg||30.3%||1.578 W/kg|
|BODY||1.16 W/kg||20.2%||1.453 W/kg|
|HOTSPOT||1.00 W/kg||58.9%||1.589 W/kg|
The Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) of a mobile device measures the amount of radio frequency energy absorbed by the body during device usage.
The SAR values for the pixel-6a (FCC ID A4RGB62Z) are as follows:
- 1.1 W/kg when held at the head with cellular transmission only
- 1.16 W/kg when worn on the body with cellular transmission only
- 1 W/kg when used as a Hotspot or Airplay
- 1.58 W/kg when held at the head with simultaneous cellular and Wi-Fi transmission
- 1.45 W/kg when worn on the body with simultaneous cellular and Wi-Fi transmission
- 1.59 when used as a Hotspot simultaneously with other transmitters active.

- FCC Report Link A direct link to the FCC's website for confirming SAR levels that are listed on our website - We did the homework for you!
- US SAR Ratings USA Legal Limit is 1.6 W/kg USA Legal Limit is 1.6 W/kg - FCC SAR testing is measured in watts per kilogram (or W/kg) averaged over ONE gram of simulated biological tissue.
- Head SAR Level SAR test when held against your head when only using cellular service. Wifi and other transmitter are NOT active 1.10 W/kg
- Body SAR Level SAR test when held against your body only using cellular service. Wifi and other transmitter are NOT active 1.16 W/kg
- Product Specific Use SAR test when held against your body only using the phone as a hotspot. Cellular and other transmitter are NOT active 1.00 W/kg

EU SAR Level
- EU SAR Ratings European Legal Limit is 2.0 W/kg - EU SAR testing is measured in watts per kilogram (or W/kg) averaged over TEN grams of simulated biological tissue.
- Head SAR Level 0.99 W/kg
- Body SAR Level 1.31 W/kg
The guidelines use a unit of measurement known as Specific Absorption Rate (“SAR”) which is a unit of body-absorbed radio frequency quantity when the phone is in use. The SAR limit in India for mobile devices is 1.6 W/kg over a mass of 1 gram of human tissue.
Pixel 6a complies with these guidelines when used against head with no separation and body with 10 mm separation. Ensure that device accessories, such as device case and device holster, are not composed of metal components. Keep the device away from your body to meet the distance requirement.
For Pixel 6a , the highest Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) values reported are
- Head: 1.10 W/kg,
- Body: 1.16 W/kg.
You can also see SAR values on the website of the DoT/ Telecommunication Engineering Centre.
While most of the laboratory studies have been unable to find a direct link between exposure to radio frequency radiation and health, the DoT has prescribed the following precautionary measures while using the mobile handset:
- Use a wireless hands-free system (headphone, headset) with a lower power Bluetooth emitter.
- Make sure the cell phone has a low SAR. Keep your calls short or send a text message (SMS) instead. This advice applies especially to children, adolescents, and pregnant women.
- Use cell phone when the signal quality is good. People having active medical implants should preferably keep the cell phone at least 15 cm away from the implant.
