It is very likely we will see a refreshed version of the existing 370Z gauge cluster for the new base model.

As for the infotainment, while all trims will get the screen standard, only the higher trim levels will get built in navigation and they may also exclude things like (wireless?) Android Auto/Car Play from the base model.

As for other tech features, not only are back up cameras mandatory now as you mentioned, 2022 onwards automatic emergency braking will become mandatory on all new vehicles. So while the base model will have to come with automatic braking standard, I see higher trim levels coming with things like adaptive cruise control to keep the 'tech' differential between the low and high trim levels.
These digital display dashes are a funny development. People think they look cool, but they actually cost less, it's just an LCD display, not complicated electro-mechanical gauges. These cars that are using big LCD displays for everything (like Tesla) are saving lots of money with not having to have physical buttons and dedicated displays all over the car.

Recently bought a 2020 Corolla Hatchback SE for the wife, it's the lowest model. It comes with all of that stuff, standard, for $20K. Something to think about, Nissan may include all of the driving aids even on the base trim.
