Inside the Zero 4K:

Looking inside the Zero 4K, at the rear left, is the single DVB-S2X tuner (or DVB-C tuner if you purchased that model instead). The tuners are fixed, so you cannot swap between them. The large black heatsink you can see on the right covers the Broadcom BCM 72604 1.5 GHz dual-core 7000 DMIPS ARM v7 CPU, the card slot and CI slot are on the left and they are inserted from the rear, as you can see, there is no space for an internal HDD in the Zero 4K.
