I want to upgrade my IdeaPad 520's memory, currently, it has 2*4 GB RAM, only one is removable, so I want to replace it with 16 GB ram, but from specs, it seems I need:
2400MHz* DDR4, dual-channel capable
and this: https://egypt.souq.com/eg-en/crucial-16gb-ddr4-2400-mhz-pc4-19200-unbuffered-sodimm-260-pin-laptop-m... (from our local store)
But I don't know if they are dual-channel enabled or not
Laptop model number: 81BF

Neither one is dual-channel enabled because you picked out single modules. These are 1x16GB. You will be looking for 2x8GB. But the RAM type (SODIMM DDR4) and the speed are what you are looking for.

In that case yes. Dual-channel is a capability of the motherboard and the memory controller. Either one of these will work in dual-channel with the integrated, non-replaceable RAM.
