Enable ability to take screenshots even with Android FLAG_SECURE

On Android Emulators and Real Devices the FLAG_SECURE setting will not allow the user to take screenshots.

It would be benefcial for testing apps that cannot easily be modified. If Sauce Labs could add a desired_capability flag that would ignore this setting and essentially disable FLAG_SECURE, to allow screenshots when an Android app is tested.

    Simply, we have limited physical devices but many emulators. it is problematic to allow only physical because our testers may not find an available device.

    This feature on real devices is currently available, we need to understand the use case for emulators
