Yes you can, if its size and connector look the same as e.g. this one: https://www.amazon.com/Lenovo-512GB-4XB ... B0719GF9Y4

You are talking SSD here, not hard disk.
And it will work at NVMe Read/Write speed of 3,500/2,500 MB/s.

I'm not familiar with the limitations of a T480, I only know what a Samsung 970 CAN do.
Your choice, your decision.
