    These 2 emojis weren't approved for Unicode 9, but are already in Android N
    Last week, we learned that 72 of the 74 proposed emoji candidates were approved for Unicode 9.0 and the two that were left out were the modern pentathlon and rifle ones. Interestingly enough, Google had already implemented those candidates in the Android N developer preview.

    Also, since these two were removed so late, they'll still be supported by in Unicode 9.0. They'll just be displayed with black and white symbols instead of the color emojis that people are used to.

    It will be interesting to see if Google keeps these in further updates of Android or if they will be removed.
