Yeah okay. But what is the intention? It's just an app. I was excited for the update because of cosmetic changes. I don't get it.

In XPERIA XZ Phone app is new on Android 8.0.0 so why XPERIA XZ Premium didn't get this. Or maybe it will get in next update?

Wow Sony... "Phones with 8.0 out of the box only will have the new Caller ". The XZ just received Oreo and the new caller UI..... And the XZ started from 6.0.... We also better get it..

Just installed Android 8.0.0 on my Xz and no new phone app. Someone on XDA forum said there is new phone app but not true.

At the Xperia XZ forums from XDA. A user with the XZ who upgraded to Oreo said it.
there's just one guy there claiming there's "new call UI", and everyone else says they don't see it on their devices after the update.

Guys the new phone app on XDA forums works. I've installed it on my XZ premium and it works perfectly so far no bugs. It's the stock android one from the pixel phone but very similar to XZ1 style.
Here's a tutorial for those who wants to add it:
I've managed to find the Google pixel style dialer app from XDA forums and it works perfectly on my Xperia XZ premium running 8.0 oreo. The pixel style one looks similar to the one on the XZ1... Anyways for you guys that want it you need to:
(Guys I've only tested this on my XZ Premium and it works fine, so please download at your own risk, as I can't help fix anything that goes wrong)
(This isn't mine, it's from a poster called
iMarbot on the XDA forums, so full credit to him)
2. Download the first attachment in the post which is " Google Phone 8.0.147081443 [Patched].apk" (newer versions seem to not work)
3. Install the application, it will ask you to allow apps from unknown sources because it's not from the play store so make sure you have this enabled.
4. Now you have to go to App permissions and click "Telephone", find the Phone app you just installed and enable it.
5. Go to settings - Apps & notifications - advance - Default apps - Phone app - and choose the phoneapp you just installed.
As I've said I haven't had any problems with this app so far, it all works perfectly and makes the Xperia feel even more premium with the new look. I hope this helps everyone that wanted it for the XZ premium.

Just replaced all 4 apps from Sony's to Google's. Feels pretty good! The phone even has a bubble mode!! Wow! Now my phone looks like a "premium" one. Sony, looks what you made me do. lol
Thank you @Xperiafan0
