A total of 31 new emojis are up for approval to be included in this year’s emoji update this September. 

The list of emojis that are heading for approval to be included in Emoji 15.0 includes:

  • Shaking face
  • Plain heart in light blue, grey, and pink heart
  • Rightwards pushing hand in yellow and five skin tones
  • Leftwards pushing hand in yellow and five skin tones
  • Moose
  • Donkey
  • Wing (just the one)
  • Goose
  • Jellyfish
  • Ginger (the rhizome)
  • Hyacinth (a bulbous Mediterranean plant)
  • Peapod
  • Folding hand fan
  • Hair pick (or pick comb)
  • Maracas
  • Flute
  • Khanda (the symbol of the Sikh faith)
  • Wireless (similar to the Hari Kebangsaan logo this year)
  • Blackbird

Some of these emojis, like the Khanda, should have been included a long time ago (before pregnant man and troll), and we could have sworn that there’s already a plain pick heart in the current list of emojis, but it turned out to be red instead. 

Although there are no official images of these emojis yet, and they will vary depending on how each company implements them in their app and device, Emojipedia’s Head of Emoji Design, Joshua Jones has done a version of them.

Note that the list could also change as they have not yet been approved. 
Even if all of the proposed emojis were approved, 31 new emojis seem like a relatively low number. Last year, Emoji 14.0 introduced 112 new emojis (37 new emojis in 57 skin tones).
