It does look too big to be a Yuan, so is likely nuclear - but don't all 093 versions known to date have a vertical sail trailing edge? Also the shape of the rudder is different, with a greater leading edge sweep.

To be honest, I'm inclined to dismiss it as fake though.

Yes like a slight hump trailing on the back of the sail. The trailing hump seems to differ a bit among the variants, but I am confident to say this is an 093 variant. It also has a pitot on the tail fin for a TAS, which is another characteristic of the later 093 variants whatever its called (093II, 093G, 093B, whatever.)
