Your notebook may only have one wifi antenna cable connected to the card in there now, so you would have to confirm that your notebook has two wifi antenna cables in order to upgrade to a dual band wifi card with Bluetooth.
if it has two antenna cables connected to the Ralink, then you can upgrade to this model wifi card with bluetooth...
Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 802.11 ac 2x2 WiFi + BT 4.0 HP Part # 710661-001
If your notebook only has one antenna cable connected to the Ralink wifi card, you could still upgrade to the above card, but the Bluetooth won't work due to the lack of antenna reception.
If you must have bluetooth, and your notebook only has one antenna cable replace the Ralink wifi card with this single band wifi card with bluetooth...
Realtek RTL8723BE 802.11bgn 1×1 + BT 4 LE Combo Adapter HP part # 753077-001
You should be able to find either of these wifi cards on eBay or Ali Express.
Below is the link to the service manual, where you can find the wifi card removal and replacement procedure...
Since I don't work for or represent HP, unfortunately I don't know why they went to a one antenna configuration--especially when they install wifi cards that have two terminals and work best with two antenna wires connected to them.
The Realtek card part number I posted only has one antenna terminal and was designed for the wifi and Bluetooth to work with only one antenna cable.
