Yes , it will get it concealment buff to 5.6km at maximum.

All torpedoes will get their aerial dectection radius slash in half (planes will less likely to spot incoming torps)

Here ya go

https://worldofwarships.asia/en/news/announcements/public-test-074-key-feature/

"As the game progresses and introduces new ships, Shimakaze also must adapt and continue to be capable of completing her main battle tasks. In the Update 0.7.4 we enhance the battle performance of this destroyer and reduce her standard detectability range by sea to 7.11 km (5.59 km with all possible modifiers applied), which lets the ship spot most of her adversaries while staying undetected."

it is kinda nice, but it wont change the fact that her torp can be detected from the farthest among other torpedoes in the game

while geraing and fletcher get even more stealthy torpedoes (air recon wise)

Sure they do, but they also hit much harder than any other torps and they have the highest flooding chance of any torps.  The extra detection is just a quite reasonable balancing factor, it doesn't change the fact that the type 93 mod 3's are extremely good torps.  The torp spotting by planes detection change next patch will also have a very positive effect on IJN torps.
