Sync Date not reported correctly in LR

Hi all,
I am using LR Classic CC on my desktop and I have set up LR CC on my android phone to syncronize mobile photos to the main catalog. All works fine, except I noticed that WhatsApp images are reported with the wrong capture date and time in the Library Loupe view overlay. In this example (See capture-1.jpg), I have a WA image taken the 07.July 2018 but the "Capture Date/Time" of the overlay show today's date, when I suppose the metadata was last saved to file.

When I use a filter for searching photos in the library, the correct value is used.

Is this a bug in LR 8?

Hi Umberto, sorry we missed your thread. It does sound like a bug relating to missing metadata.
