According to Andrew Jones from gbtimes.com the Shaonian Xing CubeSat will fly as secondary payload with Zhangheng-1 in August:

"China will in August launch its first satellite developed by teenagers as part of an outreach project to engage youth in thinking about space, STEAM education, and even satellite development.

The 2-Unit cubesat, referred to as Shaonian Xing (少年星), and roughly translating to 'Junior Sat' or 'Youth Sat' (or more literally 'star'), is a result of China's Teen Satellite Project.
...
Piggybacking on a seismic mission

With a mass of just a few kilos, to get into space Youth Sat will ride as a secondary payload on the Zangheng-1 mission, also known as the China Seismo-Electromagnetic Satellite (CSES), which will launch on a Long March 2D rocket from Jiuquan on August 16."

ESA says that GomX 4A and 4B are flying in September, with Gunter Krebs listing these satellites being launched with Zhangheng 1.

Due to fly flight in September 2017, GomX-4B is supported through the In-Orbit Demonstration element of ESA’s General Support Technology Programme, focused on readying new products for space and the marketplace.

Put off for a month?

This launch will apparently be the return-to-flight for the CZ-2D after the partial launch failure of the first two GaoJing-1 satellites last December.

Has anyone outside of the Chinese launcher community deduced the partial failure mode?  Was it the first stage?

All I know is that the partial failure mode was not related to commonalities CZ-4 family.

The satellite is apparently a 3U cubesat. ChinaSpaceflight posted an photo on Twitter: https://twitter.com/cnspaceflight/status/905372049295630336
