New emojis will be coming to a phone near you in about six months.

"A new lobster emoji would fill a necessary and unique void in the current Emoji List, and, should it be added, appears destined for significant usage by lobster fans around the world", King wrote in his letter to the consortium, according to the publication. A formal request was submitted to the Unicode Consortium by King himself in September 2017, The Hill reported. But who are these people who get to decide what we're all going to use pretty soon?

2018 is the year of red-headed emoji.
When it comes to smiley faces, there will be a smiling face with three hearts, a hot face, a cold face, a dizzy face and a pleading face.
Unicode 11.0 will also include new objects, such as a teddy bear, a cupcake and a skateboard.
The Unicode Consortium describes its role as "developing, maintaining, and promoting software internationalization standards and data", according to the group's site. The specifications of Unicode 11.0 are still a draft. Or maybe a "woozy face" or "partying face" emoji does the trick. Apple and Google will then ship iOS and Android updates with those new emojis at some point before the end of the year.
