X270 M.2 SSD Upgrade using WWAN slot

I have a disk spinning X270 and I plan to upgrade the SSD. After reviewing a bunch articles I decide to use the WWAN slot.

I saw a thread using a transcend 256G M2 SATA as following,

https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/X270-Bios-Update-v1-11-Broke-my-M-2-SSD-WWAN-...

 

What I am really interested in is that if I can use the WWAN slot to install a M.2 2242 PCIe, instead of the SATA, such as a Toshiba RC100 M.2 2242 240GB NVMe PCIe 3.0 x2 64-layer 3D BiCS TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) ...

 

There are posts on Reddit saying that the 2242 has to be SATA, but it was in early 2017. Anybody know if it is doable to put a M.2 PCIe in the WWAN and boot the system on?
