It's that time of the year again where we welcome the new emoji onto our phones. Well, not quite yet but we do have the official list of 157 new emoji which are almost certain to appear on your phone later this year.
It comes direct from Unicode – the consortium in charge of issuing new little faces you can send to your friends on your phone – and other companies will soon adapt these into their platform.
You may recognize some of the options we've listed below, and that's because we already saw a list of 130 potential new emoji last year, but this is now the official final list that Google, Apple and others will begin adapting into its platforms.
Every emoji coming in Unicode 11
The options here include Cold Face, Hot Face, Partying Face, a variety of superheroes with different skin colors, a pirate flag, racoon and over 140 more. You can see all of the options below:
The designs you see for the emoji above won't be the ones that arrive on your phone.
Instead these are made by the emoji experts at Emojipedia and are based on what companies will likely design within the parameters that Unicode have set out.
Apple, Google and other companies will then take those parameters for each icon and adapt them to fit in with the different design quirks so it'll look much more like the emoji you already use on a daily basis.
Exactly when these new emoji will be coming to your phone is unclear. Unicode will allow manufacturers to issue them from some point in June 2018, but you may need to wait until Android P or iOS 12 to be able to use them.
