T470 i5-6300U how many memory slots (20JMS)

I just ordered a T470 and want to ugrade the ram to 16gb. It comes with 8gb. Is there two memory slots in a 20JMS0Q000 or just one?

AFAIK the RAM is soldered to the board so you need to order a 16GB model if you need that much memory.

 

This is now common practive with thin machines. Usually the 16GB machine also comes with the higher rated processors too.

I didn't think they started soldering RAM to the boards until the T480's and up.

The specs do not show if one or two DIMMs are installed.

 

Likely the lower cost one has 2x 4096MB and the other has 2x 8192MB.

Thank you for responding. I know it is coming with 8gb. I am guessing a single sim as it didn't mention two 4gb sims. So my question is how many sims can I put in this laptop? Is there more than one memory slot? None of the info I have come across so far mentions how many sim slots it has. Thanks again.
