The final emoji list for 2018, containing 77 new characters (or 157 including skin color variations), was published on Wednesday by Unicode Consortium.
Notable additions this year include new hairstyles, animals and superhero/supervillain emojis.
Emojipedia shared mockups of what the new 2018 emojis could look like if designed by Apple (see above and below).
This release is designed so that vendors—like Apple, Google and Samsung—can start work on designing the emojis for final release as part of the respective operating systems in the second half of 2018. Most of these will likely make their way into some version of iOS 12.
