Phone unlocks after screen is turned off


When I turn on the screen of my Xperia XA1 Plus just to check the clock and notifications (i.e. without unlocking via symbol or fingerprint), and then turn it off again via power button, the screen turns off and then shortly after (usually the time it takes to see the screen going black and put it into my pocket) it turns on again by itself and it's also unlocked.

It looks like the fingerprint sensor is triggered with a delay when I turn off the screen via power button. The phone however should never unlock when screen is off, as it's happening now. This is annoying because the phone always unlocks in my pocket with random things happening. Is there any solution to this issue?
