Upgrading a SSD M.2 (Type 2280) in a HP 15-bs115nv

HP Recommended
HP 15-bs115nv
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have a laptop HP 15.6" (i7-8550U/8GB/256GB/Radeon 530 4GB) 15-bs113nv model.

Due to low storage and slow speed, I would like to upgrade my old SSD which is: 

Sandisk 128gb SSD X600 M.2 2280 SATA III

with this one: 

Samsung 970 Evo Plus 500GB NVMe

My only concern is that the motherboard will not accept the NVMe type socket.

Opening the laptop I found that there is an M2X3 type connection.

Will the motherboard accept the new NVMe SSD or should I go with the safe option which is a:

Samsung 860 Evo M.2 500GB SATA III

which has the exact same type of socket (SATA M.2) as the previous one?

Hi:

 

Below is the link to the service manual for your notebook's model series.

 

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c05493257

 

Chapter 1, page 3 has the supported drive types.

 

According to the manual, only SATA M.2 SSD's are supported.

 

The part numbers for the 'value SSD's' also show that they are SATA.
