Who likes emoji? The Unicode Consortium sure does, which is why it added 72 new candidates that will be available in Unicode 9.0. The latest batch includes a variety of new faces and objects, with the most notable being the selfie, facepalm, bacon, and shrug emojis.

Unicode 9.0 is slated to launch on June 21, which means we'll likely see the new emojis in iOS 10. Interested in taking a look at all the new additions? Check out the list at Emojipedia.
