Your answers are extremely factual. Thank you, but neither I nor the others, possibly interested, need such. I am asking because I do not know whether it is possible in this model, whether the SSD is not soldered or not an integral part of the motherboard. As for what the equipment is under warranty, I will not start it if someone knows that it can or not. If it is possible, I will do it, if not, I will not disassemble the equipment. I am not stupid and I know I can check, but such a test may cost me a loss of the warranty. So I ask those who know if it is possible, because in previous models spin 1 sp111-31 it was possible, and here I did not find info anywhere at Uncle Google. So before you start commenting in the "probably" type and lecture about the obvious, do not write, because it does not help anyone. Have a nice evening.

Welcome. The original "SSD" - it's actually a flash memory card soldered onto the motherboard. The SSD wheel it didn't really lay, I wonder why some people don't call it by name eMMC, they just write SSD (it's about sellers' offers). The exchange is probably possible if you like and know how to solder BGA chips. Generally, without tools for this, assume that "SSD" is non-replaceable.
However, it is worth seeing if there is an M.2 slot on the disc, then there would be a chance to add a normal, correct SSD disk.
The best way would be to disassemble the laptop - it doesn't look very difficult with this model and - as long as there are no visible seals - it probably won't interfere with the warranty. I found a review of this series (with a larger memory card, maybe with a different processor - because they were with Pentium and Celeron), but there are photos of the interior, it will probably be the same:
When enlarging one of the photos, we have the following view:
After the key in the slot, I can guess that 2280 M.2 SATA drives (or PCIe x2.0) should fit, but it's worth making sure. With budget models, probably SATA.
It is also worth seeing if there is such a socket specifically in the colleague's copy. It cannot be guaranteed that in every series it will be (perhaps the super low-cost versions with Celina and 32GB flash have this slot cut out for the sake of savings). In one of the comments under the review, it says that the user did not have a socket.
So - there is a chance, but it's worth taking the cover off, it's not a breach of warranty. By the way, it is worth taking a detailed photo of this connector (you will be able to judge whether it is SATA or PCIe x2 by the paths, if you could not find it in the specification. SATA and PCIe x2 drives have cutouts that physically fit such a slot, hence the lack of certainty. So, if the socket was found - a good, sharp photo of the area of the connector itself may reveal anything, as long as the paths are visible.
