The emoji that will appear in Unicode 11.0 have been finalized, according to theĀ Unicode Consortium, and new options will be available for hair, skin, and gender.

Some 157 new characters are included in Unicode 11.0. With the core characters set, operating system developers and device makers can adopt the base code ahead of their own customizations. Some of the new options will let men and women emoji select from various hair styles (including red-haired and bad), while new hero and villain styles support new gender and skin tone options. There are new colors available for leg, foot, bone, and tooth emoji; new animals such as badgers, swans, peacocks, and llamas; new food such as mangos, leafy greens, and moon cakes; and many new places, activities, games, objects, and symbols.

The Unicode Consortium will release the final code for Emoji 11.0 in June, and expects them to reach consumer devices by August or September.
