Problems getting color type of PDF file


I have been testing Aspose.Pdf for .NET and encountered a problem getting the color type of the page with the following code:

Aspose.Pdf.Facades.PdfFileInfo fileInfo = new Aspose.Pdf.Facades.PdfFileInfo(filePath);
var x = fileInfo.Document.Pages[1].ColorType;

The returned color type is BlackAndWhite, even though the PDF contains a colored logo.

I'm currently using the version 11.7.0 of Aspose.Pdf.

I've attached the pdf file.

Is there another way to get the color type without rendering the page myself?

Any updates on this matter? My temporary license has expired and I need this issue resolved before I can buy a full license.
