Behold, the 157 new emoji for 2018


The Unicode Emoji 11.0 set is final, adding 157 new emoji to the 2,666 we previously had. While we have not yet seen how these will be drawn by Apple, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and other vendors, Emojipedia has whipped up a set of sample emoji to present an idea of what they might look like.

There are 77 unique emojis, padded by skin-color varietals. For smileys, there’s “Smiling Face With 3 Hearts,” “Hot Face,” “Cold Face,” “Partying Face,” “Woozy Face,” and “Pleading Face.” Humans get hair color options for “red,” “curly,” “bald,” and “white,” along with two new professions: “superheroes” and “supervillains.” There are also disembodied legs and feet in the various skin tones, and we can’t wait to see how the kids turn them into weird euphemisms.
