    Inside, it features a new 13-inch infotainment touchscreen that can be easily integrated as a voice assistant with ChatGPT AI. Enhanced charging options have also been provided, with the 'Phone Box' now offering wireless charging up to 15W alongside improved USB-C connections that deliver fast charging up to 45W. However, the physical interface options are limited due to the absence of 'smart dial' control limits.
