Is it possible to upgrade my WiFi card in current laptop (AF006AX) to Dual band (5Ghz) compatible Card?
Please provide the details which card should I opt for so that it is compatible and working with the motherboard.

Yes, there is one model wifi card you can upgrade to, and that is this one...
Realtek RTL8821CE 802.11 ac 1x1 WiFi + Bluetooth 4.2 Combo Adapter (MU-MIMO supported) HP part # L17365-005.
You can find this model on eBay, or Ali Express.
I see Intel 3165 cards listed at the top of the eBay listings, so don't buy those.
On the Ali Express listings, make sure the card has the HP Part # of 915620-001
Below is the link to the service manual where you can find removal and replacement procedure.
