A new thread on 9ifly Chinese space forum announces a launch to GTO from Xichang on December 25. There is no identification of the payload.

Possibly TL-2 Tianlian-2 (1)?

The use of the CZ-3C/G2 vs. the CZ-3B/G2, used for the first two TJS s/c, would imply a less massive GEO-bound payload this time?
