New Unicode 9 Emojis

Update: Unicode 9.0 has now been released.


Unicode 9.0 includes 72 new emojis, and is scheduled for release on June 21, 2016.

We have created mockups for every emoji, showing how we think they will look:

These are created in the "Apple-style" of emoji which is glossy, and uses a mixture of photorealistic and cartoon images. They form the Emojipedia 2.0 sample image collection.

We made a video showing these images in gorgeous HD, too:

Do I get them on June 21?

Probably not.

It's worth noting that the approval date of Unicode 9.0 doesn't necessarily mean they will be rolled out to end-users on this date.

From June 21, vendors such as Apple, Google and Microsoft are able to start including these in public releases.

Note to media: Please feel most welcome to use these images for articles about Unicode 9 with a link back to this post or our sample image collection for attribution. For higher resolution images for your publication, get in touch.
