Unicode has finalized the list of new emojis for 2018, coming to mobile phones in August or September. Hot face and woozy face extend the range of options to convey your state of mind and as well as new objects and animals there are variations on the existing man and woman emojis.
The version number for this release of Unicode emoji is jumping from the previously-released Emoji 5.0 to Emoji 11.0 (instead of 6.0). As the Unicode blog explains this is to synchronize the version number for emoji set with the corresponding version number of the Unicode Standard.
There are a total of 157 new emojis, all of which are included in this video from Emojipedia.
Four new hair options (red haired, curly haired, bald (although I'd describe the hair as close cropped) combined with six skin tones mean that there are now 48 people emojis, rather than just Man and Woman.
The default skin tone is yellow and the other five are light, medium-light, medium, medium-dark and dark There are now 6 leg and 6 foot emojis.in each of them.
The existing superhero and supervillan emojis also now have variants in all six skin tones and the line up has been extended with 2 gender-specific sets for Man and Woman to choose from with Man and Woman - providing 18 of each of the bad and the good. They all look young, gormless and harmless to me.
of course an object doesn't have to have just one meaning as this extract from the unicode list makes clear.
Of course an object doesn't have to have just one meaning as the above extract from the list of new emoji recently added emoji unicode list makes clear. I understand dupe and expendable for a pawn - but why red shirt?
If the emoji you want is'nt yet available proposals for the 2019 release of emoji 12.0 need to be submitted before then on March 2018 to align with the 2019 release of the Unicode Standard.
