SDK41 - Android 11 - canOpenURLl() returns false for tel: scheme

Our app offers a button to call an emergency number. We initiate this through Linking.openURL() after checking availability with Linking.canOpenURL(). In SDK40 this worked fine. After upgrading to SDK41 we see some Android 11 devices return false for canOpenURL().

On the affected devices the problem exists for the URLs tel:110 and tel://110 (German emergency numbers: 110, 112).

There’s no mention of any change regarding tel: in

There’s no mention of any (additional) permissions required in

Any idea what we could be missing here?
