Yeah I checked it as well. But if there will be way in the future, does rooting my phone will void the warranty?

Or just unlocking the bootloader will do?

Re: How to root xperia z5

Both rooting the phone and unlocking the bootloader will void the warranty.

However, if rooting is done without unlocking the bootloader, it can be undone: original stock software can be put back to it with Flashtool, so it will not be noticeable at all.

There's no way to root the Z5 series w/o unlocking the bootloader.
