I was concerned that the successful orbit announcement was too soon after the approximate launch time.

Long Optical satellite
2 minutes ago from Weibo videos "Just now, our double spectral star launch was successful!" The constellation increased to 12 "Jilin One" Spectrum 01, 02 stars also known as "Jilin Forest Grass One", "Wenchang super Count". Satellite is a new multispectral satellite developed independently by long Optical Satellite Technology Co., Ltd., two satellites fully inherit the mature single machine and technical foundation of "Jilin One" satellite, equipped with multi-spectral imager, short wave, medium wave, long wave infrared camera, "Water transport One" system and other loads, with on-board intelligent Processing System, can obtain 5m resolution, Remote sensing data for 110km width and 26 spectral segments. After the satellite is in orbit, it will provide remote sensing data and product services to users in the forestry, grassland, shipping, marine, resources, environment and other industries with the 10 previously launched "Jilin One" satellite network. The mission is the 5th launch of the "Jilin One" satellite project.

Seems like launch has occurred per Jilin-1's operator, but details are still pending.

Edit: Looks like the launch waa successful with T-0 at 05:42 UTC. 4 satellites are on board (IIRC the other 2 are from Tianyi).

Transliteration of "吉林林草一号" (Jilin Forest Grass One) is "Jilin Lincao Yihao" and "文昌超算一号" (Wenchang Super Count) is "Wenchang Chaosuan Yihao". Yihao is one is Chinese.

“吉林一号”光谱" ("Jilin One" Spectrum) is Jilin Yihao Guangpu.

The translation is a bit off - the satellite (6U cubesat) is called Lingque-1A, first in their 132+ planned EO cubesat constellation.

One of the posts on 9ifly talks about a `water transport 1' satellite as a possible 5th satellite, but the source material
seems to make it clear that it is just an instrument on the Jilin-1 Hyperspectral 2 satellite.
http://www.xinhuanet.com/politics/2019-01/21/c_1210043583.htm

"Shuiyun yi hao" (水运一号) payload carried on the Spectrum 02 sat is a special payload jointly developed by Changguang Sat Tech Co and the Water Transport Science Research Institute of the Ministry of Transport. It can support
auto-navigation (drones maybe? - JCM), polar navigation safety, maritime search and rescue and other areas."

Multiple views of the launch, including drone shot

In those videos it's apparent there's a couple of motors igniting a few seconds after the main engine start. Are those roll control motors or something different?

They certainly look like roll control motors. Not sure if they are using liquid or solid propellant though.

They look like solid-fueled roll control thrusters. It actually reminds me of the ones Epsilon uses.

Well, in http://industry.people.com.cn/n1/2019/0122/c413883-30584279.html they say Beijing Zero G has launched four satellites in 2018 but only two are easily visible: Fengmaniu-1 and EREBUS-1 (and some support role in Huai'an Enlai). So which ones did we miss?

Even the web page of ZeroGLab refers to only 2 satellite launches in 2018 - FMN-1 and EREBUS-1. There have been earlier reports in 2018 saying that 2 prototypa Lingque satellites were originaly planned for 2018 launch. Very likely the count of 4 satellites in 2018 is simply a misinterpretation.
ZeroGLab offers now the ZG3U and ZG6U satellite platforms commercialy. I found one image showing a ZG2U satellite. The corresponding report refers to the BY70-1 satellite launched in December 2016.
