Also, I find the lighting very odd. It's almost as if there's a second sun shining directly at the plane from just behind the camera man.
I meant the big one at the nose tip like the ones in testing phase.I do see a pitot tube on the aircraft; J-20s have one on each side of the nose behind the radome and that's where they are on those pictures.
And yes the early production J-20s didn't have the additional dark edge treatment on its weapon bay doors.
I mean I've been looking at these pictures, I personally don't think anything stands out to me as looking "off".
The environment just looks immensely bright sure, but everything is where it should be, and the haze in the background due to the engine exhaust is all where it should be as well.

Sorry my questions were put in a broken manner.Sorry I don't quite understand your question.
I don't think we've seen any J-20s with testing phase pitot tubes since like prototype sn 2012. Prototype and production J-20s since then have all lacked the pitot you are taking about.
And it's only in later production aircraft that we saw J-20s with the additional weapons bay dark outline treatment.
So if the question is whether the aircraft in the pictures is configured similarly with production J-20s that we know of, the answer should be a definite yes.
I.e. there's nothing on the aircraft itself that looks out of place imo
Sorry my questions were put in a broken manner.
The bold text was also my thought and reason for asking. If as we have observed that only prototypes have the pitot tube. This one in the photo should be a serial production one, right? But it lacks the edge treatment of the doors. As I remember all serial productions have their doors treated. It is these two seemingly contradictory features made me asking the question.
When you said "later production aircraft", do you mean some early production aircraft did not have the treatment? Maybe I did not pay attention, just have never seen them.
