The company, which is the gatekeeper for emojis, made the announcement earlier this week in a blog post, revealing that a total of 157 new emojis for the 11.0 series will arrive on phones between August and September.
They include a variety of new human emojis with different skin tones and hairstyles. Users will be able to choose between red tresses, curls and even bald ‘dos. The brand is also introducing men and women superheros and villains with varying skin tones. The characters, however, aren’t as specific Black Panther or Spider-Man.
