Ionic4 android release fist launch after install screen blank


I am encoutnering a very distincitve but persistent problem with my Ionic4 app on android.
If I run app in debug mode with ionic cordova run android it works without problems (all the same if I add --prod flag here).

But when I create a release build with ionic cordova build android --release --prod, sign, zipalign and install it on my phone, the first launch after install always shows splash screen and white blank screen after that.

If I kill the application, and run it again after that, It works normally … :open_mouth:
