The screens look like multifunction to me.
Likely that the one in front of the driver will show the vital information, such as speed and motor currents etc. Another screen most likely will show the operators timetable. One more screen for other diagnostic info, and/or communications, and one maybe for in-train video.
I am not quite sure whether the train will have rear-view mirrors or cameras. In the latter case, one screen will also show the images from those cameras.
In general, the cab looks pretty much like a standard (European) layout to me.
The seat, however looks quite cheap, compared to the European types (with headrest and coat hanger, and being ergonomically shaped). But what the customer orders, the customer gets.
