T490 M.2 SSD in WWAN Slot

2021-06-16, 9:23 AM

Hi there,

 

currently I am trying to figure out if it's still not possible to add a 2nd SSD to my T490 (Type 20N3).

For now I found on reddit and some other forums, that it's was not working few motnhs till a year ago.

But I found some people supsecting that a UEFI firmware update might add compatibility, since options for a 2nd M.2 SSD where seen in the UEFI settings.

 

Since there were some updates in the past year I wanted to ask, if someone has some up-to-date information about this topic.

Is is still not possible to add a 2nd M.2 SSD in the WWAN Slot of the T490?

 

Thanks in advance

Nikongen

Hello Nikongen!


Welcome to community forums

 

 

So far I have not heard or encountered yet that there is a change regarding that from the update. As you can see in this discussion, it seems like the WWAN is exclusive.

 

However, we can wait for fellow users who have tried to check if it works for them.

Thanks for the quick reply... Sadly I was not able to find my model number in the PSREF listing... But I guess for now I think I'll swap the 2280 SSD with a bigger one instead of using a 2242 in WWAN Port. As someone in the discussion above mentioned a 2nd drive could also have drastic impact to battery life.

If you're trying to look for the model on the psref, you can refer it here: https://psref.lenovo.com/Product/ThinkPad/ThinkPad_T490

 

Filter the country and you should find your model(20N3) at the bottom part of the list.
