    The issue is still reproducible. Used Unity 2018.2.1f.
    Is't really fixed? Could you please provide the "future version" where it is fixed?

    Leaving a comment incase anyone else encounters the form of this issue where the game is transparent rather than black as what happened in my case.

    It caused the app to just not render rather than render black making the last frame of whatever was on the screen as you launched or switched to the app just appear frozen on the screen. (However the app can still be used as normal, it's just that you can't see anything)

    Issue happened on my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and switching Blit Type to "Always" fixed the issue.
