I have a Thinkpad X1 Carbon (3448), laptop with 128gb ssd. I want to upgrade it to higher capacity ssd but i don't know which ssd is needed so i go and disassemble the laptop, the ssd is 20+6pins so i went to google but all i found is adapter. I can't find a ssd with 26pins can someone tell what ssd do I need?

Sorry if my english is bad. Thanks for your help.

The 20+6 pins standard is a proprietary standard used by Lenovo during that time. Nobody uses it anymore.
However, you can try using a m.2 to 26 pin adaptor. Buy a m.2 ssd, stick it into the 26pin adaptor, then stick the adaptor into ur Thinkpad X1.

No guarantee that it will work, but it should.

Note: Get a m.2 to 26 pin adaptor and not the other way round! For example: https://www.amazon.com/NGFF-Adapter-Lenovo-Carbon-Ultrabook/dp/B014LZ2FYS
