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.
