A teaser for a new set of Emoji from Unicode 14.0 has appeared on Emojipedia. Such emoticons will soon appear in instant messengers and social networks.
Among the new emoji is a man with a big belly (
that pregnant or overweight from beer), new hand gestures, shaking hands of people with different skin colors, a natural troll, a disco ball, a discharged battery, an X-ray, a children’s slide, a crutch and emoticons with the expression of different emotions.
A man with a belly is presented in many variations – with and without a mustache, with different hair colors and different skin colors. Complete variability for all occasions. Emojipedia states that this is a new variation for the existing pregnant woman emoji, recognizing that pregnancy is possible for some transgender men and non-binary people.
Emoji creators also announced plans to add gender-neutral default emoji to all emoji with people. It will be impossible to determine the gender of a person in such emoji.
Release Unicode 14.0 on September 14th. After this date, these and other new emojis will begin to be introduced into operating systems, instant messengers and social networks, that is, everywhere, where people carry out correspondence. The appearance of emoji may vary depending on the operating system, but in general, designers try to stick to the ideas given by the Unicode standards.
