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

I have some bad news. I contacted my local support and they said that the XZP isn't getting the new Dialer. It's for Xperias which have 8.0 out of the box and even though the XZP was updated to Oreo, it won't get it. Also I asked about Display flash and they just said that the XZP doesn't have this feature....

Way to treat a flagship Sony..... 😪

something wrong with that. because Sony usergide shows Xperia xz premium has new dialer. it shows slide up to answer and slide down do reject.

Re: The Phone app is not updated in Oreo

Hi Everyone,

You might experience that the new incoming call screen that let's you swipe up to answer a call, and swipe down to reject a call, is only available in Xperia devices released with Android 8.0 (Oreo). Devices released with a lower Android version will not receive this feature, even if they are updated to Android 8.0 (Oreo). This is by design.

Re: The Phone app is not updated in Oreo

At least the XZP deserves to have the New Dialer...  It's the flagship of 2017.. 

Time to start an uprising! We got distortion fixes. Time to get new Dialer, Treble, Display Flash and other features from the XZ1...

Re: The Phone app is not updated in Oreo

If it is like that why Sony show like this, in this case Sony has to update Xperia XZ Premium caller interface to new one. and why Xperia XZP is the 2017 June Release. why Sony cant update it to New Caller. i know they can and they will that's why they put it in User guide.

Re: The Phone app is not updated in Oreo

I don't know about the Display flash and others but they Should update Dialer to new one like Xperia XZ1. because Yesterday XZ1 got Same update number as 47.1.A.5.51. why Sony do like this to your Flagship Buyers. Actually not more time. it launched in this year June.

Re: The Phone app is not updated in Oreo

Out of curiosity, does the new dialer thingy offer new features or improves functionality or is it just a cosmetic change?

Re: The Phone app is not updated in Oreo

I believe is cosmetic, but the XZP should at leave gave gotten it because it's the larger sibling of the XZ1 series. 

I don't have an XZ1 so I don't really now if there are new functions.
