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


The local Xperia Care Support has emailed back to me saying that they do not know if XZP will be updated to the new Phone app. It is up to the developers.

 

So how do we contact developers and let them know of this issue?

Re: The Phone app is not updated in Oreo

Hi,  is there any Sony team on this forum who can confirm whether the XZ Premium will get this update?  I think it'll be very nice if it does. 

 

Edit:

The support user guide online shows the new style for answering calls,  I'm guessing it was missed out by accident maybe?

We might get the new phone app with the November security patches and the fix for the Dual SIM XZPs

The security patch usually does not include any app updates though. But we'll see...

This is very interesting. I hope they just made a small mistake that they forgot to update it to the new version.

Still no New Dialer UI and Display flash 47.1.A.5.51

Where are these features Sony?  The XZ1 and XZ1 Compact have them. Why can't the bigger sibling get them as well?

However after upgrading the November patch there's nothing changed. The phone app is still the old version.

Does Sony even acknowledge this?  They have the XZP as the largest member of the XZ1 family. So it's like XZP = Z5P, XZ1 =Z5, XZ1 Compact = Z5 Compact.  The Z5 series have exactly the same software hardware..  Why can't the XZP have Display flash and the new Dialer?  Can't they use What's new, Play Store or even OTA?
