Yet more evidence has emerged indicating Tesla is preparing to launch a refresh of its flagship Model S and Model X vehicles.
One of the features available on the Model 3 and Model Y that is not available on the S/X is the interior cabin camera. While sometimes controversial, the selfie camera will be used to help monitor occupants when your Tesla is giving autonomous rides to Robotaxi passengers, and potentially driver monitoring when Autopilot is engaged.
According to Tesla hacker @greentheonly, the S/X may soon be getting this feature based on evidence he found in the source code of the latest software update.
not yet, but there's something called "S/X P2" with hw3.2 that does have the selfie…

This evidence of a possible interior refresh is just the latest in a growing number of hints, all of which are pointing to an impending design change.
Earlier this month Tesla notified employees working on the S/X production lines of an 18 day shutdown over Christmas and New Years.
Other evidence of a refresh includes long delivery wait times, with customers in Europe having to wait until March to receive their new cars.
