Question Dell g5 ssd upgrade?

Mar 9, 2019
Hello I have a DellG5 Series, Intel® Core™ I7-9750H, 6GB NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Graphics, 16GB DDR4 RAM, 1TB HDD & 256GB SSD, 15.6 Inch Full HD 144Hz Gaming Laptop. Am wondering if its possible to upgrade the ssd? If so which type of ssd will I need as I already have a
Samsung 1 TB 860 EVO M.2 Sata III Solid State Drive?
the 860 EVO is one of the best performing standard SATA drives...

(Is it possible to buy one without an SSD, since you are planning on changing it/adding one anyway? I've used a few Crucial MX500 SSDs in laptops, and they are also great performers, and normally $20-$30 less expensive than Samsung 850/860 EVOs...)

Does their G5 have an M.2/NVME slot? If so, and if one could order one with no SSD, then you could easily add an Intel 660P in 1 or 2 TB size at the lowest cost to you...(dell tends to 'cost bloat' the assorted upgrades, a $50 more expensive component costing you an additional $150, etc)
