There are 69 new emoji candidates — and we’ve ranked them all


Unicode will release new emoji in June — and we’ve ranked all 69 of the possible contenders.

Rejoice: New emoji are on the way!

Unicode, the consortium responsible for choosing the new emoji across all platforms, has been working on the latest emoji for months and they’re almost ready for the their June 2017 launch.

Now, Emojipedia has the 69 new emoji candidates on its site, rendered in an “Apple-like style” so we can see what they could one day look like in iMessage.

To be clear: These are not the final drafts of the new emoji; these current iterations may still undergo further changes before getting released in a few months. Plus, once they’re actually out, users probably won’t get them until this coming fall.

Still, it’s always fun to get a sneak peek, so we’ve compiled all the emoji contenders and ranked them from worst to best. The criteria for the ranking was pretty subjective — mainly, how they made us feel and whether we can actually see people using them in real life. There aren’t detailed explanations for most of the rankings, but we do offer a more in-depth analysis for the top 10 on this list.

Mermaids have captivated our imagination for centuries, and emoji are finally catching up. This Ariel-like emoji is not only cute, it’s incredibly detailed (look at the water droplets and her pointed ears!). Plus, this mermaid has reddish hair, which is a hair color that’s been missing since an update in 2015.

This sign language symbol for “I love you” is not only heart-warming, it’s useful. It’ll save you from typing out those eight letters, and it gives you a nice alternative to sending hearts and hug emojis to your loved ones. Hopefully this is the first of many ASL symbols added to emoji.

2. Orange Heart

Pretzels are delicious, yet highly underrated in the snack food community. Plus, this appears to be a hot pretzel, which is even better. Thank goodness this salty snack is finally getting the appreciation it deserves.
