The first aircraft to have the new First will be a 777 and it won't be dedicated to a particular route so there is no way for anyone to say if you will or won't get the new First. The second aircraft will be a 747 in March and again it will not be dedicated to a particular route.
The product is actually quite a nice evolution of the current product that remains modern, understated and elegant.

Though from the snippets it's looking better than I thought it would do. 60% wider at the shoulders... That's quite an impressive increase for a cabin design/layout that appers the same footprint as the current.

Besides the art-deco style photos where you can't really make anything out about the product, I have faith in the new First cabin. From what I can make out in the one picture, it looks like the inside of a Range Rover.

It reminds me of those promotions that have been around for years: New Improved Joy Dishwashing Soap, New More Absorbent Paper Towels, New Fresh Scent Shampoo....all based on the idea that if you write up new words and try to repackage the SAME product under a new advertising campaign, you'll get people to jump on board and spend, spend, spend. Now don't you all think that if they REALLY had nice seats to showcase, and great IFE, and details after details of excellence that they WOULD showcase these in a slick ad campaign. As those Roman gladiators traveling in First would have said: Nihil novum sub sole.
