Those are for the parade. Given how conservative PLAAF is they want to make sure everything is absolutely reliable. WS-19 has officially integrated with J-20 on production aircraft for just a year. We’d be lucky to see those at Zhuhai.
WS-19 was said to be a medium thrust engine?

Question WS-10 is temp until WS-19 comes online?
WS-15 is the target engine for the J-20 and WS-19 the target engine for FC-31/J-31/J-35. And contrary to what AustinPowers stated, the WS-15 is not a member of the WS-10 family. It has a much smaller bypass ratio and uses a completely different core.
