The phone has two SIM slots and both are capable of accommodating 4G SIMS. Unfortunately, it is a hybrid SIM slot and hence if you use two SIMs, you have to forgo expandable storage.

The Mega 2.5D is armed with Mediatek's MT6753P quad-core processor, which is clubbed with Mali-T720 GPU, 3GB RAM, and 16 GB of internal storage, with the option to expand up to 32GB with a microSD card.
