Unicode Consortium has accepted 5 new emoji characters as candidates for
Unicode 10.0, scheduled for release in mid-2017. These 5 new emoji
candidates are listed on the Emoji Candidates
<http://www.unicode.org/emoji/charts/emoji-candidates.html> page,
together with the 74 candidates for Unicode 9.0. These join thousands of
non-emoji candidate characters for Unicode 10.0.

Candidate characters for Unicode are not yet finalized---so some may be
removed from the candidate list, and others may be added. Names, images,
and code points may also change, so these candidates are not yet ready
for use in production systems. Other prospective emoji characters are
still being assessed and could be approved as candidates in the future.

Proposals for new emoji characters can be submitted at Submitting Emoji
Character Proposals <http://www.unicode.org/emoji/selection.html>, which
also explains the selection factors used to assess new emoji proposals,
the process, and the timeline.
