Evaluation of Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) for multiple antenna systems is becoming important, with the upcoming deployment of LTE-Advanced. In this work, the influence of different antenna locations and antenna types was investigated for stand-alone SAR and simultaneous SAR, to provide some guidelines for antenna design in multi-antenna handsets. For simultaneous SAR, different phase shifts between antenna ports were considered and the averaged SAR was used as a metrics for comparison. The SAR performances were evaluated in simulation for the body worn scenario, and different placements of the mobile handset, i.e., with either the screen or back side closer to the body, were studied.
