It is not specific in the hardware manual for the SSD specification but checking with FRU listed (item11 page55). Product specification sheet here shows : SSD / SATA 6.0Gb/s, NGFF 2280, removable, upgradable too.
I would suggest to have amn M.2 SATA SSD like Samsung PM871 instead of those using NVMe protocols.
I hope this helps answer your query.
Update us how it goes for you.

Hello fellow Yoga owners. My installation was a new Samsung EVO 970.
I just went through an SSD install on my Yoga Flex 5. Most of the issues require software configuration.
The hardware is easy to install and Lenovo drivers accept Samsung ssd in AHCI mode (the BIOS setting).
I scavenged the one SSD hold down screw I needed from the HD drive, since it has 4 screws.
In Windows 10 (or any other OS) you have to go to "Disk Management" to activate the new SSD.
There are 2 freeware utilities to transfer the OS, either ARCONIS or EASUS.
One description can be found here:
Hope that helps.
