The J-20 is also slated to carry a variety of advanced electronic systems. This technology includes an active electronically scanned array, a chin mounted infrared/electro-optic search and track sensor, and a passive electro-optical detection system that will provide 360° spherical coverage around the aircraft. These systems are expected to be comparable to those found inside the F-35. Additionally, the J-20 is likely to field an advanced communications suite that will enable it to datalink with friendly platforms in service and platforms under development, such as the Divine Eagle airborne early warning drone.

Garbage place for an EO sensor. Sorry, Dave.
Only the USN and USAF will stupidly place their add-on EO sensors there. When you get to integrate a sensor with a clean sheet new design like this, it'd never happen.
It hasn't been present on early pictures, but it looks like there is an attachment point. So I'd guess it's an RTE.
