A new set of emoji was recently announced by the Unicode Consortium, the non-profit organization that develops and promotes the use of these symbols in all major operating systems, meant for adoption by major platforms in 2018.
makers, however, can mix and match their own versions, and Samsung
has apparently been hard at work overhauling its emoji roster for its Experience 9.0
version that is landing on the Galaxy S8 as we speak
, and will be present on the Galaxy S9 out of the box, too.
There are plenty of changes to look forward too, the most notable being the weather, gestures and smiley icons. Check out some of the changes that the Samsung Experience 9.0 interface version will bring to your emoji game compared to Experience 8.5 in the slideshow below, and tell us which set is your favorite.
