Ive a hard time believing even that configuration could reach that altitude. That would put it well above a U-2 or RQ-4.

Yes I share your skepticism. Here is a proposed flight path from a paper published during the development phase:

J-20s with the serial number 87### are counted up to 12 in service. A recently spotted serial number is 62### with 62001 being the first one spotted. More recently 62005 and 62007 have been spotted. That suggest probably at least 7 J-20s with that serial number. So 12+7 making at least 19 in service as of now. The new serial numbered J-20s said to be heading to the 7th Air Brigade in Wuhan still have the older engine.

So I would guess maybe 8 or 12 for the 62### serial to make 24. And then the next batch of J-20s to use the newer engines like the one in the post above. The newer engines that have the serrated edges don't seem to be WS-15 though.

Fair point. But there is just not much information available anywhere.
