The overlords at Emojipedia have just released some of the proposed forthcoming emojis and they are quite glorious. Emoji 5.0 contains a plethora of fantasy-genre characters, including elves, wizards, fairies and mermaids. The most notable addition is the breastfeeding woman (big ups, Emojipedia!). The most useful addition is the angry swearing face.
As per usual, the forthcoming update includes a handful of foods and animal images that I could have sworn already existed. Is there not already a sandwich emoji? A fortune cookie? A giraffe head? Anyway, they’re all here now.
Look out for Emoji 5.0… sometime this year.
