The ThinkPad T470s has different storage options but it only comes with the one that you chose first.

The T470 and T470s storage difference is T470 can have HDD instead of SSD Sales Agent (7/21/2017, 8:44:43 AM): Adn T470s only SSDs Me (7/21/2017, 8:45:12 AM): ok so confirm that t470s supports 2,5" inch SSD? Sales Agent (7/21/2017, 8:46:05 AM): Yes.

Welcome to the forum.
According to Lenovo's ThinkPad_T470s_Platform_Specifications.pdf the T470s models do not have a bay for 2.5" drives.
By contrast ThinkPad_T470_Platform_Specifications.pdf indicates that the T470 models do have such a bay.

As hausman says, the platform specs say pciE m2 only, this page has a photo of the internals.... there is no-where for a 2.5 inch drive to fit:

I have the same quesion. It seems to me there is no space for 2.5' ssd. It should be M.2 SATA ssd slot only. However, they said there is 2.5' ssd ( 180GB) in this T470s. Have you received your T470s yet. What exactly inside?

Who do you believe more, some "they" or Lenovo's official specifications as linked above?

I believe the slot supports either SATA or NVMe format drives.
