- The keyboard features a button that likely brings up the Emoji panel.
- The leak also shows a separate number pad.
A leaked image shows off a Microsoft keyboard with a button to bring up the Emoji panel. The image emerged online thanks to well-known leaker WalkingCat. The keyboard looks a lot like Microsoft's Surface Keyboard, except that it has a detached number pad. WalkingCat shared a second image of a separate number pad.
Keen-eyed Twitter user Tero Alhonen spotted a unique key just next to the keyboard's arrow keys. The key has an icon featuring a heart on a square, which is the same logo that appears on Windows 10X's keyboard. On Windows 10X, that icon brings up the Emoji panel, which allows you to easily input Emoji and Kaomoji.
That button seems to be on its way to Windows 10, or Microsoft at least seems to be considering adding it. The button appeared on the latest Insider preview build of Windows 10 and appears on the leaked keyboard shared by WalkingCat.
Microsoft already makes a keyboard with an Emoji button but that button opens up the Windows 10 Emoji picker.
The keyboard shown in the leaked image also appears to have the option to toggle between three connected devices by pressing the F1 key.
