Unicode Emoji 11.0 characters now final for 2018
Message ID:
🧨 Emoji 11.0 <> data has been 
released, with 157 new emoji such as:
/hot face/
/woozy face/
/woman, red haired:
light skin tone/
/man, curly haired:
dark skin tone/
/woman superhero/
/pirate flag/

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.

The man and woman emoji can now have various hair styles (red-haired, 
curly-haired, white-haired, and bald), and the new superhero and 
supervillain support genders and skin tones. The new leg and foot also 
support skin tones.

The new emoji are listed in Emoji Recently Added v11.0 
<>, with 
sample images. These images are just samples: vendors for mobile phones, 
PCs, and web platforms will typically use images that fit their overall 
emoji designs. In particular, the Emoji Ordering v11.0 
<> chart 
shows how the new emoji sort compared to the others, with new emoji 
marked with rounded-rectangles. The other Emoji Charts for Version 11.0 
<> have been updated 
to show the emoji.

The version number for this release of Unicode emoji is jumping from the 
previously-released Emoji 5.0 to Emoji 11.0 (instead of 6.0) — starting 
with this release, the version number for emoji is synchronized with the 
corresponding version number of the Unicode Standard.

To be considered for emoji 12.0, new emoji proposals 
<> must be submitted before 
the end of March 2018. This schedule is to align with the 2019 release 
of the Unicode Standard.


/The 157 new emoji will soon be available for adoption 
<> to help the 
Unicode Consortium’s work on digitally disadvantaged languages./
