- Emojis: 471
An update to the SoftBank emoji set released at the end of June 2008, sometimes referred to as SoftBank 3G.
This version added more detail to each character and was the first SoftBank release to show the majority of smileys as round characters rather than square edge-to-edge designs.
Note: Each emoji has been mapped to its modern Unicode codepoint, despite this set existing prior to Unicode emoji standardization.
About SoftBank Emojis
SoftBank is a Japanese carrier which had its own emoji set for the years 2006—2016. Apple's original emoji font was designed to be compatible with this set due to iPhone being a SoftBank-exclusive phone when first released in Japan.
In 2016 Softbank announced they would be switching to Google emoji designs on phones supporting Android 7.0 or above. SoftBank no longer releases updates to this emoji set.
