Instagram stories flicker

Does anyone face screen flicker while watching Instagram stories on S20+ ?
Refresh rate of 120 Hz reduces the issue some times but it is still there.
Quick Google search says that pixel users also face this issue and disabling auto brightness resolved issue on pixel phone. (Doesn't help Samsung)
Any idea?

Don't have this issue on my S20+. I assume you already tried reinstalling Instagram, does this occur on other apps like Facebook Stories? Try loading up an HDR content on YouTube and see if it flickers there if not, maybe you have to wipe everything that is Instagram related in the root folder.
