This means that future Huawei devices on all tiers will have the option to use the Dubai Font on its user interface. Commenting on the signing, His Excellency Abdullah Al Shaibani, Secretary General of the Executive Council of Dubai, said: “This signing solidifies Dubai’s position as a forward-thinking city that is consistently on the cusp of innovation. Dubai Font is a new tool for self-expression and communication in the region and around the world, and we are confident that this agreement will leave its mark on the world. Huawei has a good reputation and future, and this seemed a natural fit for us moving forward.”

Huawei devices sold in the Middle East and Africa this year will get the Dubai Font option first while the rest of the world will get it early next year.
