Now white screen problem is solved.

In android studio 2.0,My APK size was 16 MB while using Instant Run.
Without using Instant Run it became 27 MB.
While in 1.5 .. the size was 27 MB.

Instant Run is the culprit.

Android Studio - blank white screen when running Ionic App on an emulator

For whoever meets the same issue.

It turns out that my problem was the path where ionic build builds the project (dist) and the webDir path on my capacitor.config.json (public) weren't matched.
