Next to the new green icon for units not affected by the notorious exploding battery issue, the phablet also gets a rich set of new emojis with the latest update.

Unicode 9.0 emojis have been around for a while as companies like Google, Apple, or Facebook already added them to various products. Now, it looks like the time has arrived for Samsung Galaxy Note7 users to get new emojis as well.

The notorious phablet is finally headed in the right direction, with the replacement program nearing its end and the "green battery icon" update finally available. However, the update brings a new battery icon, as well as more than 1,700 new and overhauled emojis. Next to various food and animal emojis, the new firmware also comes with one that shows a selfie-taking hand.

After performing the update, Samsung Galaxy Note7 users will be able to quickly tell if a device is affected by the exploding battery issue or not. Safe handsets will display the battery icon in the status bar in green, instead of the usual white. Those interested to see the full list of new emojis for the Note7 can find it here.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
