The Unicode Consortium announced that 217 new emojis will be included in Emoji 13.1. However, 210 of them are variations with different skin colours, and there will be only 7 completely new ones: a heart on fire, a heart in bandages, a woman with a beard, a man with a beard exhaling a smile, a smile in the clouds and a smile with spiral eyes.

Emoji 13.1 turned out to be a minor update. It was originally planned to release Unicode 14 in 2021, but it has been delayed until 2022 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As for the timing of the appearance of Emoji 13.1 on smartphones, no one has yet named the exact date, probably it will happen in the second half of next year. Even the Emoji 13 set has only recently become available on select Google and Samsung devices.
