Fingerprint scanner visible when in sunlight

Star III
Please tell us some basic information before asking for help:
Model Name: ROG Phone 5
Firmware Version: .86
Rooted or not: Not
Frequency of Occurrence: Whenever I am in sunlight
APP Name & APP Version (If your issue relates to the app):
In addition to information above, please also provide as much details as you can, e.g., using scenario, what troubleshooting you've already done, screenshot, etc.
When I am using my phone in daylight I can very clearly see the fingerprint scanner on the screen.
It doesn't impact the functionality of any application that may be open, but it detracts from the experience, especially when playing games.
Is there a known fix or setting for this that I don't know about?
