The Unicode Consortium has announced the finalization of the Emoji 11.0 standard which adds 157 new emojis.
The new Emoji 11.0 set is fixed and final, and includes the data needed for vendors to begin working on their emoji fonts and code ahead of the release of Unicode 11.0, scheduled for June 2018. The new emoji typically start showing up on mobile phones in August or September.
Notably, the man and woman emoji can now have various hair styles (red-haired, curly-haired, white-haired, and bald), the new superhero and supervillain support genders and skin tones, and the new leg and foot support skin tones.
All the new emoji can be seen here. These images are just samples and vendors for mobile phones, PCs, and web platforms will typically use images that fit their overall emoji designs.
