Best RAM upgrade for Aspire 3 A315-35G RAM with it's default 1x4GB DDR4-2133; Timing: 15-15-15-35

Hi!
I'm a newbie, please bare with me. Asking for the Best RAM upgrade.
In crucial site, the ff clock rates are available: 2400 / 2666 / 3200.
My machine's max RAM capacity is 20GB. I have a default 1x4GB RAM and it's soldered inside so I'm considering to get 1x16GB of RAM.
What is the optimum clock rate to pair with my 1x4GB DDR4-2133; Timing: 15-15-15-35? 
Will it become Double Channel after I install a RAM, i'm not sure. I've researched and saw comparison that dual channel is faster than single channel.

LAPTOP SPECS
Processor: Intel Core i5 7200U @ 2.50GHz 
HDD: 1x1TB Seagate ST1000LM035-1RK172

 > 1x4GB DDR4 2133Mhz (Single Channel)

    Hello,
    I think you made a typo. Do you own an A315-53G?
    First the Intel I5-7200U processor supports DDR4 2133MHz so the memory modules stated will work at 2133MHz.
    Here are the Acer specs:

    About the dual channel, I would suggested you to read this Intel topic about Flex Memory Access (Flex mode):

    Hey @laurent_14
    Oh. You mean, i can use any of the ff: 2400 / 2666 / 3200 ? If yes, what will it be the best to choose?
    Sure, i'll read the flex mode.

    I would buy the cheapest since it will work at 2133MHz (CAS latency or CL15). ;)
