If you are thinking you can replace the unit to gain the fingerprint detector the answer is No.
 
As far as the LCD its' self its the same screen per the specs as the iPhone 5 but likely has a different ribbon cable layout per the leaked pics we so far have seen. You'll need to wait for the IFIXIT teardown to see what they find.
 
So why would you do this if you don't need a new screen? Besides the iPhone 5s parts won't be available for quite sometime.
