I have a Shinelon Laptop with an I7-4712HQ CPU. I looked at the motherboard and saw that the CPU is not soldered to the motherboard and was wondering if it was possible to upgrade the CPU. Everything is in Chinese and there are Chinese stickers under the processor and when looking up online at the CPU it says this should be a FCBGA1364 socket. BGA meaning soldered to the board, but could potentially be a LGA1150 for normal desktop computers.

Anyone have any idea if this is upgradeable?
I've included the system specs below through MSinfo32.

The problem I have is the motherboard looks nothing like the MX15 Alienware motherboard.
