SATA SSD Storage Laptop Upgrade

The system is an Asus Vivobook 15 X512DA with a Ryzen 3 3200u. It has only one M.2 slot which is populated by a 128GB SATA unit (not nvme). The laptop also has a space next to its battery where I could perfectly fit a 2.5 SATA SSD and right next to it, there's a flex connector. However, the box came with no bracket or SATA to flex adapter whatsoever, even though there were other similar models that did come with it. Therefore, I was wondering if I could buy a generic SATA to flex adapter so as to be able to have two drives on the machine. Here are some photos of the space that I talked about, the flex connector which I think could be used for this purpose and the generic adapter that I could buy. Perhaps, Asus didn't include this expansion option because of limitations in the platform itself, or maybe it's just because it's an ultra budget option. Let me know what you think, and thanks in advance.
