US Sony Xperia Z5 And Z5 Compact Are Not Getting Fingerprint Readers

The Sony Xperia Z5 and Z5 Compact are coming to the US, but their fingerprint reader must have been confiscated by the TSA. You read that right, the US versions of Sony's flagships will lack the security-focused sensor.

True, they will still bring a recent chipset (Snapdragon 810, up from S801) and the recent generation camera... but an Xperia Z3 can be snatched correct now for $360 or so, well below the $600 the Z5 will cost. The Xperia Z3 Compact is $360 on Amazon too, while the Z5 Compact will go for $500.

Sony's strategy in the US has been, shall we call it a small confusing? This go is even stranger – few flagships are left with no fingerprint reader and Sony can't exactly coast on the popularity of the Xperia brand to create up for the downgrade.
