The emoji language is ever-changing and constantly evolving. It will have a range of new characters in 2016 that could include selfie and face palm.
The Unicode Consortium released a new list of candidates, which could be added as emoji in Unicode 9.0. The new character set will make an appearance in 2016.
Included in the list are the likes of the classic ‘Rolling on the floor laughing,’ selfie, and symbols that will let conversing people fist bump one another. You will also be able to reference a range of culinary delights, including avocado, croissant, bacon, potato, and carrot.
The inclusion of many of the emoji on the list is “based on expected high frequency of use or because they are highly popular requests from online communities."
This is a preliminary list, so it could change between now and the release of Unicode 9.0 next year. You can see the full list on the Unicode blog.
