These Are All Of The New Emoji Coming This Year And Yes, There Is A Merman

Emoji addicts rejoice! A recent announcement from the Unicode Consortium AKA the Emoji gods has revealed that 69 brand new characters are set for release in June.

Yes, we know that seems like forever from now, BUT the site Emojipedia has created a series of mockups that are getting us all sorts of excited. Check out what they’ve released so far below!

69 versatile new emoji are set for release this year and will include characters such as a mermaid, a bearded man, a hedgehog and a breastfeeding woman.

In June, the emoji “powers that be” AKA the Unicode consortium will release a brand new set of original pictographs for you to blow up your Insta captions with. Though we still have a few months before this release, the site Emojipedia has mocked up how these new designs will most likely appear on your keyboard.

“These mockups are created at the candidate stage, and may or may not resemble final versions from each platform vendor,” Emojipedia explains.

According to Emojipedia, there is no guarantee that all 69 emojis will be released, a number of the emojis were proposed and voted on by users via site emojirequest.com earlier this month. (But we’re desperately hoping they all make it through.)

Thank you emoji gods, we’re not worthy.

There are a slew of new and updated mythical creatures.
