Upgrading processor/CPU

HP Pavilion 11 x360
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I was wondering is it possible for me to upgrade the processor on my laptop? I currently have Intel Celeron CPU N2840 @ 2.16 GHz ram size: 4GB. I want to upgade it to Intel core i3 or i5, Is that possible?

No the Celeron N series processors are soldered onto the motherboard so there is no way to remove it and replace it with another processor. It would be possible to swap in an i3 or i5 based motherboard but the cost is going to make it economically ill advised. Cheaper to sell your laptop and buy another.
