The Oscar smartphone does not hide supposed restrictions in design but rather integrates them into the overall concept. The irregular protrusion on the backside is cleverly designed in such a way that it becomes the characteristic feature of the device. To create the very slim battery cover with a thickness of only 0.3 mm, plastic was blended with a stainless-steel material using a special split-plot mode.

Statement by the jury

»The asymmetrically formed backside is a unique design feature that not only gives the Oscar smartphone a charming and aesthetic look but also enhances the grip.«
