The rude emoji is one of 270 that are coming to all phones this year, as unveiled in the new official Emojipedia list for 2019.

Emojipedia has put together a great video previewing what each of these new emoji may look like when they arrive on our devices later this year.

As for animals, the new emojis include a flamingo, a sloth, a skunk, an otter and an orangutan. However, Unicode says that the new Emoji probably won't show up on mobile handsets until September or October.

The new emojis should be available on smartphones in March. But don't expect to see the latest offering on your keyboard just yet.
