PDF can't display on Android phone

Steps to reproduce

First, I make sure that the pdf file is not corrupt and can be open in obsidian on desktop and iPad. Also my other PDF reader on Android can open it too.
Then, I have tried disable the third party plugins and themes, clear all the user data, uninstall the app, reinstall the app from play store, reinstall the app from apk file.

Expected result

PDF should display in a clean new vault.

Actual result

Still as before, obsidian only display two page-turning button.
