Looks like Priyanka is definitely playing Sati, as confirmed by the Korean poster of her character for The Matrix Resurrections.

So who is Sati? If you have watch the 2003 film The Matrix Revolutions, the third film in the original trilogy that was directed by the Wachowski siblings, Sati is a program, the child of two other programs (don't ask!) of Indian ethnicities. Keanu Reeves' protagonist Neo first meets her and her family in during the subway train sequence in the opening act.

As a program, Sati was seen as an 'exile', someone without a purpose. However, the Oracle sneaked her into The Matrix know that she would serve a major influence in the network ahead in the future, and thus becoming Neo's responsibility to bring her back when she is kidnapped by the Smiths.

Interestingly, Oracle tells Sati that she would meet Neo in the future, and it looks like her words are finally coming true. As to how Sati would influence the resurrected Neo in The Matrix Resurrections to remember his past remains to be seen. As per theories, she would be the new Oracle in the rebooted Matrix.
