Quick Start Guide
Your mobile phone supports dual-card dual-standby mode,
which can significantly reduce power consumption and
increase your phone's standby time. Note that two restrictions
When you make calls using one SIM card, the other SIM
card is disabled.
For example, when you make calls using SIM card
1, SIM card 2 cannot be used to answer calls or
access the Internet. If someone calls SIM card 2,
the caller will hear a voice message like "The
subscriber you dialed is out of the service zone" or
"The subscriber you dialed is not able to answer
your call, please try again later." This is because
your mobile phone cannot access the network
with both SIM cards at the same time and has
nothing to do with your service provider's network
condition. It is recommended that you subscribe to
services such as voicemail or missed-call reminders
from your service provider to avoid the
inconvenience caused by missed calls.
When you are using one SIM card's data services, you can
receive calls and messages using the other SIM card, but
data services will be interrupted.
For example, when SIM card 1's data services are
in use, you can use SIM card 2 for calling and
messaging, but SIM card 1's data services will be
interrupted as a result. When the call using SIM
card 2 is terminated, or the message is received or
sent, you can resume using SIM card 1's data

EU regulatory conformance
Body worn operation
The device complies with RF specifications when used near
your ear or at a distance of 1 cm from your body. Ensure that
the device accessories, such as a device case and device holster,
are not composed of metal components. Keep the device away
from your body to meet the distance requirement.
Certification information (SAR)
This device meets guidelines for exposure to radio waves.
Your device is a low-power radio transmitter and receiver. As
recommended by international guidelines, the device is
designed not to exceed the limits for exposure to radio waves.
These guidelines were developed by the International
Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP), an
independent scientific organization, and include safety
measures designed to ensure the safety of all users, regardless
of age and health.
The Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) is the unit of measurement
for the amount of radio frequency energy absorbed by the
body when using a device. The SAR value is determined at the
highest certified power level in laboratory conditions, but the
actual SAR level during operation can be well below the value.
This is because the device is designed to use the minimum
power required to reach the network.
The SAR limit adopted by Europe is 2.0 W/kg averaged over 10
grams of tissue, and the highest SAR value for this device
complies with this limit.
The highest SAR value reported for this device type when
tested at the ear is 0.543 W/kg, and when properly worn on
the body is 0.932 W/kg.
Hereby, Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. declares that this device
is in compliance with the essential requirements and other
