My Z50-70 laptop has Samsung DDR3 PC-3 12800 (800mhz) ram. I'm not able to find this ram anywhere on the web. Also, I'm seeing DDR3L PC-3 12800 (1600mhz) rams available. Are these compatible to my laptop? How to check the compatibility of rams? I have also checked the hardware manual but nothing is there regarding the suggesting rams. Is it possible that a laptop can handle a ram with a higher frequency? (in my case 1600 mhz )
The laptop's motherboard is Lancer 5a5.
Please help me out.

Your memory spec is:
PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3L
If you see 800 MHZ speed in windows task manager (performance tab, memory), multiply by 2 to get the transfer rate. Memory transfers two "edges/sides/chunks" of data at a time.
HMM, page 80, item 12 has Lenovo OEM memory part numbers:
