This could be the first flight of a functioning New Generation manned Spacecraft and the use of the CZ-7 is suggestive of this being a test of the LEO variant of the spacecraft with a mass of ~14 tonnes.   Using Google Translate, the payload is described as "a new generation of manned spacecraft first flight", slightly different wording than used for the spacecraft planned for launch in 2018 atop the first CZ-5B.
