HP Spectre x360 15t - SSD Upgrade and USB-C Charging?

HP Spectre x360 - 15-ap012dx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi, I own the HP Spectre x360 - 15-ap012dx (ENERGY STAR), which came preconfigured from Best Buy with the UHD display and 256gb SSD. I have two questions about this device:

 

1. Can I upgrade the SSD to an NVMe PCI-e SSD such as the Samsung 960 EVO (which is an M.2 SSD). I know a recent BIOS update added support for new Samsung SSDs, but I want to make sure before I buy one.

 

2. Can I charge my Spectre via the USB-C port? From what I understand, it might support USB Power Delivery (it's a 3.0 port, not a new Thunderbolt 3 port)

 

Thanks!

@bmg1001

 

Thanks for reaching out to us on HP Support Forums. 🙂 I came across your post and would like to help.

 

I understand that you have an HP Spectre x360 - 15-ap012dx and would like to know if you can upgrade to Samsung 960 EVO (which is an M.2 SSD) and if you can change the laptop via the USB-C port?

 

I did some research nd found that you may upgrade to an M.2 SSD. However, there a limit to the storage space it can support. Up to 500GB  should not be a problem. Please review this link to know how to replace the SSD: http://hp.care/2kf7u4r

 

Regarding the USB type C port for charging, I suggest you to review this link which gives details about provide charging power to many devices (USB Power Delivery or PD): http://hp.care/2keRWgS

 

Hope this information helps. Keep me posted for any additional questions. All the best! 🙂
