This looks to be the launch of TJS-7 according to the screenshot below.
Spaceflightfans.cn now lists a CZ-3B launch on August 23rd (CST UTC+8) but has not listed the payload or the launch time. The following article lists a SAST built payload is going through processing at Xichang. http://www.sitp.cas.cn/xwzx/zhxw/202108/t20210803_6150988.html

Recently, the launch test team of a certain model at the satellite launch base Shanghai Institute of Science and Technology has completed product self-testing and satellite-mounted testing, and all functions of the payload are normal. The satellite is about to be transferred to the launch area, and the test team is making the final sprint for the payload to be launched into orbit with the satellite. Deputy Secretary Tong Weiqi came to the launch center to make preparations with the test team members, and encouraged everyone to be careful and careful, strictly control the quality, and make new contributions to the dream of aerospace power!

  At the satellite launch base, under the witness of Deputy Secretary Tong Weiqi, the first branch of the aircraft and the security software branch jointly carried out a joint construction activity of "Thoughtful organization and implementation to ensure complete success". The daily work of the two branches is for model tasks. Do a good job of management and service guarantee. Secretary Weng Dongshan of the First Division of the Engineering Department and Secretary Zhang Yuquan of the Tiaobao Software Branch conducted in-depth exchanges and discussions on how to ensure the development of major model tasks between the two branches. The test team members of the Third Engineering Division participated in the activities. Through the joint branch building activities, we will not forget the original aspirations of strengthening the country, keep in mind the mission of flying to the sky, base ourselves on their posts, give full play to the pioneering and exemplary role of party members, work around the center of the institute, ensure the complete success of major model tasks, and let the party flag fly high in the front line of major aerospace projects!

A user on the 9ifly posted this regarding to the launch schedule from Xichang for the remainder of the year. Knowing that launch opperations alternate between LC-2 and LC-3 we can determine several things. (The first two launches listed were Tianlian-1 05 and Yaogan-30 Group 10)
August 6th to August 8th: LC-2 - CZ-3B - ChinaSat-2E
August 23th to August 25nd: LC-3 - CZ-3B - ?
September 8th to September 9th: LC-2 - CZ-3B - ChinaSat-9B
September 23rd to September 25th: LC-3 - CZ-3B - ?
October 16th to October 18th: LC-2 - CZ-3B - ?
November 2nd to November 4th: LC-3 - CZ-3B - ?
November 26th to November 28th: LC-2 - CZ-3B - ?
December 13th to December 15th: LC-3 - CZ-2D - ?
December 29th to January 1st: LC-2 - CZ-3B - ?

Spaceflightfans.cn is not listing this launch, possibly due to the military nature of the payload (possibly a Huoyan-1 or a Qianshao-3 satellite).
