It could also be female Hainan Blue with that slight greenish time to the upper parts and pale yellow-orange breast but I'm not sure. Bill shape and leg colour might favour Chinese though. I this the only image? These female Cyornis are very difficult.

The pale throat wedge could signify Chinese after all. The bird looks a little dull and grey for Chinese but that may be due to washed-out images. It resembles this bird somewhat, which was identified as probable Chinese: Facebook.
