Can I upgrade or replace the SDD of 2017 MacBook Pro (function keys)?

I am planning to buy the new MacBook Pro Function Keys 2017. But it’s only available in 128GB and 256GB with no option of upgrading in my country.

Hence, I was thinking if I could replace the 256 SDD in MacBook Pro 2017 (function keys) model with 512 GB SDD in MacBook Pro early 2015 model.

Please give me solution, if there is any, for upgrading my SDD to 512 GB, or perhaps more, in the 2017 function keys model.

Thank you so much!

YES! But you must use the custom Apple SSD, unlike the older models Apple altered the physical design of the SSD so there is no options like the older systems.

No.

Apple created a different formfactor for A1708 (2016 2017). It is very different from their previous (since 2013) PCIe flashdisc formfactor.

Yes, we know...

The answer Aaron pointed to explained that and it offered one possible option. The comment I posted above offers other options in sizes.
