Fingerprint scanners can actually be re-enabled on Xperia X in the US
Since Sony has started the design and sales of their newly launched Xperia Z line-up and family of handsets, they have been in the funny habit of removing the fingerprint sensors for the units that would be heading to the United States markets and for this, they have not provided any explanation to explain the rationale behind this act of theirs.
However, we now know via investigations that were carried out under the hood that instead of removing the components that allow the device function with a fingerprint scanner, they have merely suppressed it via some software limitations and that means one thing – it can be re-enabled.
Therefore, this courtesy can be expanded to the units of the Sony Xperia X and Xperia X Compact that also launched in the US without scanners on them via a simple procedure.
If you would like the fingerprint sensors to come back on board with full power and work for you also, all you would need to do is flash the high end devices to another region other than the US and the software would reset itself to allow you make use of this feature.
The Xperia X can be great in the US market again, don’t you think?
