The Phone app is not updated in Oreo

The Phone dialer app of XZP was not updated to the newest version in the Oreo. It is still stuck at version 3.00, while the XZ1 is version 10.00 with a new calling UI.

Can Sony please confirm will you update this app later or never?

I'll escalate this but make sure to report this to Sony directly >>> Local support

Re: Why haven't Sony brought the new call screen to the Xperia XZ Premium?

Try to install this app:

It's Dialer taken from XZ1 47.1.A.2.374 Germany firmware.

Re: The Phone app is not updated in Oreo

I might be missing something, but I see no real difference from the XZ1 dialer? I just put my XZ P next to the XZ1 and there's no difference. What is supposed to be different?

@Dutchy007 I think the difference is in the incoming call UI, where XZ1 has got swipe up to answer. as far as I know, that part of the UI is managed by the dialer app.

There's a dialer app which is separated from the Phone app? I thought the dialer is part of the phone app
