Does my Acer Swift 3 (sf314-51-52w2) have two M.2 drive slots?

I'm wondering if my Acer Swift 3 (sf314-51-52w2) has two M.2 drive slots. Can I just add another SSD or do I need to replace the existing one if I want to switch from 256 gig to 1 TB? Also, any recommendations for what SSD I should use? I'm not gaming but I'd like quality.

    That didn't really answer your question... The SF314-51 models all have just one M.2 slot for SSDs and one for WiFi. You can't use either for the other function, so one SSD is all you can fit it. You can, however, put a much larger drive in than the stock one.

    Thanks for answering. That is helpful to know. Now I'm wondering if there is a size limit that I can upgrade the SDD to. I have 256 now. I'd like to put in 1TB. Will my laptop allow that size? SF314-51 model

    I was thinking to buy a Samsung 970 EVO Plus 1TB M.2 NVMe Internal Solid State Drive. Is that compatible?

    The size limit is defined by your wallet... They make 8TB SSDs that will fit, but that's gilding the rose if you know what I mean. 😊The Samsung should be just fine.
