The Mi5 will also be bootloader locked by default. The company explicitly states it does not condone or recommdiscontinue that you unlock your bootloader for security reasons.
It even goes a step further and recommends that you utilize “Mi Cloud” services in the event that your phone does acquire lost or stolen. An unlocked bootloader will not protect your data in either of these cases.
Besides this information, the Q&A also talks about general differences between the recent Mi5 models, specs, pricing and availability.
