The Unicode consortium has published this year’s list of new emojis. Redheads, cupcakes lovers and kangaroo fans will be pleased.
There will be new smiling emojis for redheads, curly hair, baldness and white hair. However, there are no new job related emojis this year. Instead you’ll see superheroes, heroines and villains.
New animal emojis include a kangaroo, llama, hippo, raccoon, badges, swan, peacock, parrot, lobster and mozzie.
We’ve finally got cupcakes, mangos and bagels for food. Other objects include thread, yarn, chess pawn, jigsaw piece, softball, frisbee, skateboard and more.
The full list of new emojis for 2018 can be found here: http://www.unicode.org/emoji/
Each vendor will use their own artists to create an image for these emojis. This is a draft version of Unicode 11.0, which will be finalised mid-year. These emojis will be available later this year from around July or August 2018.
If you have a great idea for an emoji, anyone can submit their ideas to the Unicode consortium (http://www.unicode.org/emoji/
