Your drive is a standard 2.5" laptop drive with a 9.5 mm height, SATA 3 (SATA 6Gb) interface.  See  https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148837  This is a hybrid drive.

You could replace it with just about any laptop drive out there if you so desired (as long as the replacement isn't a 12.5mm thick drive).  Modern laptop drives are usually 7.5mm to 9.5mm.

I'd actually be looking for a SSD for preference rather than a laptop drive.  They'll fit straight in there.  Any reason why you wouldn't want one?
Your existing drive is a SSHD (Hybrid) drive. You could use:
WD 1TB SSHD - WD10S21X
or
Seagate 2TB SSHD - ST2000LX001

Alternately, any standard laptop (2.5) Sata drive should fit into your laptop

if you have the budget, here a 2 TB SSD https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-2-5-Inch-Internal-MZ-75E2T0B-AM/dp/B010QD6W9I
it will speed up your laptop considerably, but there's a price : 660$
