QR code recognition does not work on Jolla Tablet

REPRODUCIBILITY (% or how often): 100%
BUILD ID = OS VERSION (Settings > About product): any since QR code recognition was added to Camera
HARDWARE (XA2, Xperia 10…): Jolla Tablet
UI LANGUAGE: any

DESCRIPTION:

Enabling the QR code recognition in the Camera application doesn’t do anything on the Jolla Tablet. It doesn’t recognise any QR codes. Testing with the Jolla C, Xperia X and Xperia 10 II reveals it works on those devices, so the bug appears to be specific to the Jolla Tablet.

PRECONDITIONS:

Update to the latest available version of Sailfish OS.

STEPS TO REPRODUCE:

  1. Enable QR code recognition via Settings → Apps → Camera
  2. Open Camera
  3. Show QR code to main camera

EXPECTED RESULT:

QR code is recognised and shows up as a little icon to tap on.

ACTUAL RESULT:

Nothing appears to happen, there’s no icon to tap on.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

I’d add a screenshot of the Camera app with a QR code in plain view, but the screenshot functionality on the Jolla Tablet is still broken after 3 years…
