Increasing SSD storage on new 14" laptop (second SSD?)

HP Laptop 14-dq1038wm
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I'm having trouble finding existing Q&A or H/W docs that pertain to this product series (not Pavilion, not Envy, etc.).


Most of the newer, lower-cost 14" HP laptops seem to come with 128 GB SSD.  The specs typically look fine but more SSD space would be nice.  Does this chassis allow for a second SSD?  And if not, is it advisable to consider upgrading the original SSD?


I've done one laptop HDD -> SSD upgrade in the past (on a semi-retired machine), a bit of a stretch for my tech skill level but went OK.  So a second SSD appeals more, if feasible.


Thanks in advance,

Its specs shows it ONLY has 128GB of M.2 SATA SSD. Manual:




which shows the series does NOT have option for dual storage (many vendors do the same now) therefore only one way: replace 128GB with a larger capacity M.2 SATA SSD.
