Samsung’s One UI 2.5 now supports the latest emojis. The latest One UI 2.5 is now available for the Galaxy Note 20 series, S20 series, Note 10 series, S10 series, and few more smartphones from Samsung.
Alongside 116 brand new emojis, this update includes a sizable number of design changes, with many of these being new gender-neutral designs for previously-released people emojis.
Samsung is the only Android company to ship phones using its own custom emoji font that differs from the emoji set provided by Google. Other Android phones are still using emojis from Google unless the phone is a Samsung.
Samsung emojis are glossier and sometimes more detailed than those from Google. Some apps have their own custom emoji designs, including Facebook, Twitter, and WhatsApp.
Above you can check all the new emojis within Samsung One UI 2.5. These new emojis in One UI 2.5 are based on Emoji 13.0. Furthermore, nearly a thousand previously released emojis have had their designs updated in One UI 2.5.
A significant proportion of these changes are due to gender-inclusive designs being used where emojis don’t specify a gender. Previous Samsung One UI versions displayed non-gender-specifying using either the 👨 Man or (more often than not) the 👩 Woman variant.
Following this update, Samsung’s human emojis follow the same gender-based color pattern as Google and Twitter: purple for the 👩 Woman, orange for gender-neutral 🧑 Person, and blue for the 👨 Man emojis.
Samsung’s One UI 2.5 includes two new smiley emojis and a single new gesture emoji, namely Smiling Face with Tear, Disguised Face, and Pinched Fingers. As with all gesture emojis on Samsung devices, Pinched Fingers supports skin tone modifiers. Also included in One UI 2.5 are two new anatomy-based emojis, Anatomical Heart, and a pair of Lungs.
There are eight new people emojis introduced in this update, all with skin tone support bar the abstracted People Hugging (as per Unicode’s recommendation). Check the image on Emojipedia.

All 116 new emoji designs are accessible via the latest version of the Samsung emoji keyboard. When using the Samsung emoji keyboard, all three gender options are displayed upfront in the keyboard for all people emojis. This is distinct from the Google Gboard keyboard, where only the gender-neutral designs are shown initially and gender-specific variants can be accessed by pressing and holding down on a specific gender-neutral emoji. Check the image on Emojipedia.
Users are also able to access skin tone variants of 🤝 Handshake and the three versions of 👯 People with Bunny Ears. These skin tone options are not currently recommended for general Interchange (RGI) by Unicode. Check on Emojipedia.
There is an issue with the 👪 Family emoji, however. Despite the 👪 Family design being updated to display gender-neutral individuals, the non-RGI skin tone modifier versions of this emoji were not updated in the same way.
