Default splash screen is always shown in apk

  1. SDK Version: 39
  2. Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all): Android

I simply replaced ./assets/splash.png with my png (1080x1440), it works when the app is lauched from Expo, but if i build the apk then it shows the default expo splash screen (the one with a square with circles inside). What can be wrong? I can’t get rid of it.

    "splash": {
      "image": "./assets/splash.png",
      "resizeMode": "contain",
      "backgroundColor": "#ffffff"
