Unicode 11 Proposes 67 New Emoji
The Unicode Consortium today proposed adding 67 new emoji as part of Unicode 11, including a variety of faces, body parts, food items, animals, clothing items, objects, and activities. Some of the face options include smiling face with cape, face with uneven eyes and wavy mouth, and face with glistening eyes. Some of the body parts include leg, foot, top of head with various hair colors, bone, and tooth. Some of the food items include cupcake, salt, and sliced bagel. Some of the animals include kangaroo, peacock, and raccoon. Last, some of the activities include lacrosse, frisbee, and skateboard. The Unicode Consortium will finalize which of these emoji are to be added to Unicode 11 during the fourth quarter of the year. The Consortium won't release the final version of these emoji until the first quarter of 2018. It will then be up to device and platform makers to adopt the new characters in their phones, tablets, PCs, apps, and operating systems.
