If your smartphone manufacturer has stopped publishing OS updates for your smartphone, you can try using a third-party keyboard to access the latest emojis.
Use a third-party keyboard
You can also use a third-party keyboard like Microsoft Swift Key and Fleksy if the native keyboard on your smartphone does not show new emojis. These apps have tons of emojis that are constantly updated and can be used across several apps. Simply install them to your phone from the Google Play Store and use them as your default on-screen keyboard. Go to Settings>General Management>Keyboard list and default to set your preferred third-party keyboard as the default keyboard.
These are the two simple ways you can install new emojis on an Android smartphone. Some smartphone manufacturers like Samsung regularly add new emojis to their native keyboards even when they stop publishing software updates for a particular smartphone. Check for new software and security updates to see if the latest update comes with new emojis for the native keyboard.
