Smartphones with the Highest Levels of Electromagnetic Radiation

Recent research posted to a popular financial industry website shows that certain smartphone models may pose a higher potential safety risk due to the levels of electromagnetic radiation they produce.

Data from the German Federal Office for Radiation and posted to the Bankless Times website ranks ten popular smartphone models by the specific absorption rate (SAR) levels they emit. At the top of the list was the Motorola Edge smartphone model, which reportedly has a SAR level of 1.79 W/Kg, closely followed by the ZTE Axon 11 5G, with a SAR level of 1.59 W/Kg, and the OnePlus 6T model smartphone, with a SAR level of 1.55 W/Kg.

Also on the top ten list of smartphones with the highest SAR levels were three smartphone models from Google, the Google Pixel 3XL (1.39 W/Kg), the Google Pixel 4a (1.37 W/Kg), and the Google Pixel 3 (1.33 W/Kg).
