New Emojis Coming to Android
Here’re the 56 New Emojis Coming to Android This Year

It was late last fall we got the first look at 72 new emojis released by Unicode 9.0. Since then, the Unicode Consortium has been constantly including a broader set of pictographs. Today, the consortium confirmed the Unicode 10 spec by releasing 56 new emojis. Here’re all the new emojis coming to Android.

As part of Unicode 10, the consortium was deeming 51 new emojis, ranging from zombies and vampires to mother freaking dinosaurs. Although nothing was final, things got a little serious in March this fall when the list of Android new emojis was further refined. During this beta phase, Google settled on to get a head start by adding many of new emojis in the Android O Developer Preview.

Today, the list has officially been concluded and we now have the full list of the 56 new emojis that will be included in the big Emoji 5.0. Regarding this update, Unicode says

“Unicode 10.0 adds 8,518 characters, for a total of 136,690 characters. These additions include 4 new scripts, for a total of 139 scripts, as well as 56 new emoji characters.”

The 56 code points required to create the 239 new emojis in Emoji 5.0 build up a fairly tiny proportion of new characters in this release. Emoji sequences for skin tones, genders, and flags don’t need extra code points. Here’re all the new emojis coming to Android:
