SATA M.2 only such as the Samsung 860 Evo M.2:

 

Service Manual

 

start on p. 39 for bottom cover removal and find this:

I strongly encourage you to open the laptop before you buy upgrade parts just to be sure the slot is really there and to find out if you need a mounting screw in addition to the M.2 SSD. Good luck. 

 

Post back with any other questions and please accept as solution if its the info you needed.

I photographed slot M.2. And it is not clear to me whether ssd will work here with nvme?

And is it possible to put ssd form factor 2280?

The documentation for the laptop does not say what type of ssd can be installed.

Although for example in the documentation for other laptops are specified types of ssd that can be installed.

Nvme will NOT work. SATA only per the Service Manual. And yes there is a mounting screwhole on the edge of the case but you will need to get a screw. 2280 is the only length that will work.
