196mph(315) is actually quite fast. Designed max speed doesnt mean it'll reach max speed though.

They don't look quite like the Shinkansen. Any idea about what the difference might be, if any?

Its basically the same as this train, paint work makes a big difference in appearance.

The trains in each of those videos were different types right?

Where are these trains running? Like where are they building high-speed rail lines? Does anyone have a map?

part 2 of the official CCTV news says:
China's technology, manufactured in China, and the lowest priced.
Is it really China's technology?

The news has been screaming "Chinese technology" for a while now regarding its trains. The reality is that they are foreign designs, but manufactured in China.

I assume the technology is transferred to Chinese railway producers, who then take note and try to make their own trains.

Inthis news, Shanghai Pearl TV reports that the trains are produced in Qingdao but it's Japanese technology.

it seems that they still run on regular tracks, no high speed track has been built.

the speed is 200km/h-250km/h, much faster than before, but still not a full high speed line.

Beijing-Shanghai now takes 9hrs, when high speed is built i think the objective is to shorten it to 3hrs to 4hrs.

That's obvious. High speed technology knowledge doesn't appear like magic overnight. But China wants to do as Korea did with France's TGV: technology transfer and training with the best engineers in order to finally be able to build foreign technology independently...but the difference is that Korea dosen't pretend it's their own technology .
Anyway, Chinese authorities are going to regret not having entrusted the Beijing-Shanghai line to the French TGV when it will break its own world record at 560 or 570km/h next month.

I think the Chinese are not so much about the japanese or French speed in this regard, since both are definely high speed. ? Or rather more to do with buying the technoloy transfer (copying technology) just like they did it with the German Maglev in Shanghai. Let's assume thousands of future lines in china need to be built, they need only to 'buy' one for every technology to overview of the technologies behind. You can official own the technology if you are officially buying them.
