Sony Xperia Z5 and Z5 Compact for the US have no fingerprint sensor

Sony Xperia Z5 will soon reach the US, but it will not look exactly like the version present on Asian markets. Some reports claim that the Z5 the US will receive will not have a fingerprint sensor attached. Not that such a feature is really desirable since devices that do have one are said to present a pretty shakey accuracy. Sony confirmed that the devices that US customers will get have no fingerprint scanner.       The fingerprint reader is listed on the Z5 Compact spec list at this moment, but it will be removed soon, because Xperia Z5 does not present the feature on its spreadsheet anymore.   Sony is launching the Z5 and Z5 Compact in the US in February and they will sell for $499-599. They have been available in other parts of the world for a while now. You can even find them on Amazon for smaller prices than what you would pay for them in US retail shops and they have fingerprint sensors. It all depends on who you trust better at the moment.   Source: AndroidPolice

Sony Xperia Z5 details and photos leak ahead of official launch

Sony Xperia Z5 leaked again in some new tweets and photos. Its imminent launch is closer by the day and it appears that we may get three models instead of just one: Z5, Z5 Compact and Z5 Premium/Plus. The devices should stick to the original Sony brand design which is comprised of squares and metal rails plus glass. It may not be the bestest design right now, but it still retains its charm. Specs and speculation The new Sony Xperia Z5 will sport a 23 MP rear camera sensor, if we are to believe rumors, and it appears that the power button on the side will also include a fingerprint scanner.     Other details separate the three different Z5 versions by specs:     The original Xperia Z5 should have a 5.2 inch screen with 1080p FHD resolution whereas the Compact version will sport a smaller (4.6 inch) screen at 720p resolution. The Premium Z5 should have the biggest screen of all at 5.5 inches with an Ultra-HD 4K display. The last one could be meant to use with the Google Cardboard for VR. We are not sure how well this pixel density will perform on a mobile device, but we will find out at IFA in Berlin in two days time, when the Sony event takes place.
