Yes.

First flight of the WS-20 engined Y-20 prototype with J-11 chase plane:

Any closeups?
Also which is alternative engine if it's not the chini WS20? (Assuming there is one, correct me if I'm wrong)
And how do you differentiate between the two

WS-20 is just the fat high-bypass brother of the WS-10 engine family which powers everything from J-10C to J-16 to J-20!

WS-18/DK-30 is more suitable for H-6 bombers than Y-20 because it is lower bypass (faster speed, high fuel consumption) with a slimmer profile:

So Y-20A is currently not fuel efficient with less power than Y-20B.

So once WS-20 is in full production, Y-20 will drop WS-18 for H-6 production and everyone will finally use their right engines!

AWACS in development:

Plans to expand the PLAAF’s KJ-2000 fleet were hindered by the lack of available Il-76 airframes, but the issue is being overcome now that Xian Aircraft Industrial Corporation is producing the Y-20 airframe. The final AWACS product could be the rumored KJ-3000, with enhanced ASEA radar developed by the 14th Institute, mounted as a conformal radar system for all-around coverage.
