The Black Shark features one speaker, but the earpiece acts as a second one for a Biso stereo sound. The mic of the phone is gaming-oriented with the ability to provide simple usage of voice calls and radio chat during the game without interfering with the gameplay. The body of the phone is in an X-shape for a better grip, and the frame is also utilized as an antenna.
