Take a peek at what some of the 72 new emoji might look like
Some other new emoji include a gorilla (quite timely), the face palm, left and right-facing fists, drooling man, shrug, ROFL (rolling on the floor laughing) and a hand signifying "call me." The 72 will probably be available with the release of iOS 10 and Android N later this year. The new batch becomes official on June 21st.
The 72 emoji were accepted by Unicode from a list that contained 77 emoji. While we now know what the next 72 will be, Unicode has not revealed exactly what they will look like. The images below come from a mockup made by emojipedia.org based on what it believes some of the Unicode 9.0 emoji will look like.
