I dont think so , the unit has a sata interface if you have the ak1 base unit and internally a m2 sata port . Msata is keyed differently.

Exact. But if it is this one, yes, it should pass!

Thank you! But to be sure when I take the cover off the bay is empty please see the following  attachment showing the disk connection..

Ok, just off the phone with Samsung after sending the attachment picture and the correct drive for this is the 860 EVO MZ-76E500 if you want a different size just change the last 3 numbers Now why are there different AK1?

Sorry, but I think you are wrong. If you check the specs, it says that the AK1 has a mSATA port, not a m2 port.

I believe the model first samsung model presented should be compatible.

See this video. It shows how the mSATA drive is installed. It is indeed a mSATA drive.

My Ak1 is different then that video only two screws to open a small back plate with an empty bay with the disk connection showed in my attachment.
Samsung tech reviewed the attachment and knew right away the proper drive 860 EVO MZ-76E500.  I reviewed the male connection on the drive and it will go into the female in my attachment picture.. I ordered it. Why there is two different AK1? I ordered mine from Gearbest in China!

The ak1 comes in two variants , one with win10 home and no extra base unit in which to plug in a sata drive. However the basic unit and the win10 pro unit have a vacant slot inside to plug in a msata drive , not a m2 my bad .
