WhatsApp incoming call - screens remains off on Samsung A50


When my phone is locked and screen is off and I receive a call on WhatsApp, it rings but the screen remains off. How can I make WhatsApp turn on the screen to show the incoming call screen ?

Phone: Samsung GalaxyA50 - SM-A505F/DS
Android: 9
WhatsApp Version 2.19.69

Always On Display is enabled. Disabling it makes no difference.
I have tested the behaviour with Skype, Facebook - these apps DO turn screen on for incoming call.
