Not much info online. I suggest just open the laptop, you should be able to see the upgrade path.

If it only has a hdd, then it mostly you need Sata ssd. Aka they are the one that looks like a hard drive. You can take a look and see if it has a nvme slot.

It looks like a NVME but you have to make sure you have the right one. There are 2280 and diff numbers (the numbers = the lenght of the SSD).

You can replace your HDD with a SATA SSD as well.

2280 is longest you can get it in. if you bought 2260 or 2242 i believe you can lock the ssd down using the different screw holes available on the board.

The best bet is to find the optimum ssd that the slot is designed for.

Or you get a friend w a nvme ssd and see if it fits.

Did some work for you.

Is this the same laptop as yours?

It is also mx15. Look up the ssd model and find out its specs.
