I'm planning to upgrade the RAM of my notebook, that comes with 8GB of RAM pre-installed and I'm planning to upgrade with 4 more gigs making it to total of 12GB.

Yes, that will work.
Your PC supports max 32GB of DDR4 2400MHz RAM (2x16GB) even if service manual mentions 16GB
So, yes in the empty slot you can insert a 4GB module for a total of 12GB.
On page 50 of the service manual, you can see the steps to upgrade RAM
While you have the PC open check if the M2 slot is there.
If the slot is there you could install an M2 SSD which will give a great boost to everyday performance (more noticeable than RAM upgrade).
Hope it helps,

Basically you need DDR4 2400MHz RAM
You can get from your preferred brand. I usually link Crucial because it guarantees its RAM upgrades. As you can see they offer all different kinds, even higher speeds (which will still run at 2400MHz, meaning that most types will be compatible.
Hope it helps,

Thanks for the quick reply.
So, you are telling me that things like number of pins, voltage readings(I am not even gonna pretend that i know more of these) doesn't matter and my notebook can take every ram out there, just matching size with my notebook's and need to be DDR4-2400MHz and more.

Well, not really just the size.
DDR4 2400MHz notebook RAM will be always 1.2V, speed 2400MHz and 260 pins
You need non-ECC RAM which will be most of the ones you can find. I would also get a brand name stick which will be easier to find in the future when you will possibly upgrade with another 16GB stick, as two of the same sticks will run in dual channel mode.
