I found the answer. These are IR580C NVDs first shown off at Zhuhai 2018.

Now that the US military is wholesale adopting the 6.8mm caliber, how effective is existing Chinese body armor used by the PLA?

Think of the the new 6.8mm as way to have a 7.62 NATO punch while been light as it can be ,chances are the new body armor is fine , I remember it been a ceramic plate ,most of the ceramic plated are made to stop an 7.62 NATO round .The older ones though are unlikely to stop the round. But not that many soldiers die from bullets even during ww2 ,most are killed and wounded by artillery and grenades . In that regard the older body armor should do just fine.
