Here, I tried with my XZP, unrooted, November Security patches. Works perfectly... 

https://forum.xda-developers.com/crossdevice-dev/sony-themes-apps/xperia-dialler-app-xz1-xperia-oreo...

 

Sony the app works just fine with the XZP, just give it to it... Why is it available for devices with Oreo out of the box. Just include the XZP. Leave the older ones out...

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

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 introduced in the XZ1-series, is missing in Xperia XZ Premium. Devices released with a lower Android version will not receive this feature, even if they are updated to Android 8.0 (Oreo).

I am sorry to say that I do not have more in-depth information in regards to this, but it is by design. Slightly frowning Face

I don't need new dialer, but old one needs to be fixed to. In Russia we have very long names and they are showing cuted on the dialer screen. We need second line for name!
