Smartphones emit radiofrequency radiation (RF) that can be dangerous for the health. And the new report from Bankless Times has filtered out data to show us the smartphones that have emit high level of RF which is ranked on the basis of Specific Absorption Ratios or SAR value, which is mentioned at the back of the box every smartphone sold in the market.

The measurement of SAR value is done in watts per kilogram (W/Kg) and as per the Indian SAR limits set by the regulating standards, the SAR value has been set at 1.66 W/Kg. And per the report, there are quite a few smartphones that are close to the permissible SAR limits in the country.
