    Is it me or is it indeed the first time we see something that looks like a bow of a carrier?

    It is a bit small for a carrier.

    The beam of it is about 32 meters, the Liaoning is 35 meter, Nimitz 41 meters.

    Based on the known size of the water dam from the google earth.

    The size can be like a Wasp class .

    Perhabs this is not a carrier but rather a LHD ? By this picture, it does seem to be small for a carrier

    Because it is not a copy of an existing design, but a new project, the savings from better construction techniques and additional time for something new may cancel each other out.

    It's not for an LHD, it's for a carrier.

    We already have had years of continuous rumours that the next carrier will.be built at JN.

    The purpose of imagery analysis is to confirm what we already know.
    Based on the image, it is not particularly sufficient to try and get an accurate estimate of its beam. Considering the previous rumoured size of this carrier we are most likely expecting a beam of around 35m or a little more.

    Given the resolution of the picture and given the pictures we've had of the modules in the past, I think it more than fulfills the criteria for being big enough to meet that range. For example when I use your method to measure the beam at the widest point I get something more like 37 meters.

    It is hard to measure dimensions on something shot at perspective like that. I have to agree with @Bltizo that a carrier is the most likely fit given what we know of the Chinese naval construction program. The LHDs are supposed to be built at the same shipyards as the LPDs not JN.
