New Emoji Unicode 7.0

After giving you guys a full list of the 250 new emoji coming soon to an Android device near you, we now know exactly what those emoji will look like. The new symbols and pictographs are part of the Unicode 7.0 update, highlighted in a new PDF for easy scanning. Everything from sunglasses, to a business man hovering above the ground are just a few of the quirky new emoji making the cut.

While these new additions are sure to make frequent texters and messagers salivate, I guess the biggest question many of you are asking is whether this many new emoji are needed. That answer is a resounding yes. Yes they are. We can’t wait to see what the folks at Google do with the emoji for Android. For those unaware, Android features their own unique designs for emoji, as well as OEMs like HTC and Samsung.
