Possible to replace M.2 SSD in L580 with an usual 2,5" SSD?

Hello!

 

I want to buy 2 LENOVO L580 Notebooks. Model 20Q7001HGE

 

They come with an M.2 512GB SSD. I dont need the "hyperspeed" of the M.2 SSDs but i need much space. 
I want to replace the M.2 with 1 or 2 TB 2,5" Samsung SSDs. 

 

For example:

SSD 860 EVO 1TB SATAIII 6.35 cm (2.5" ) , SATA 6GB/s, 3D V-NAND

or the pro series. 1TB or 2TB.

 

Can i just replace the M.2 SSDs without buying any other equipment like special cables or similar?

 

Thank you very much.

Okay guys. I got the notebooks. But as expected i need a new connection cable. 

 

This is what it looks in the manual:

Actually there is a much smaller Cable, thats connected to the M.2 SSD.

 

Can please someone help me? Its actually not funny to google around for years - asking lenovo does not bring any solutions. they most usually cant help...

I can find the proper cable when i google on alibaba and other sites. Where do i find this genuine from lenovo?

 

It looks actually like that. I need the SSD plugged in...

Can anyone give a hint where i can order genuine stuff from lenovo? And whats the part number?

Im from germany and would prefer ordering in germany - but can be also elsewhere...
