Here is a screenshot:

What should I do to see the color emoji like the offical sample? I'am using CentOS 6 & 7.

Leon,

It's a known problem with system fonts that doesn't have some emoji rendered. We'll remove them from the popup to avoid empty spaces. As a workaround you may try to update system fonts.

I have no idea how to update the system fonts. Because all fonts have the same results. 

And I also don't understand why only a few emojis are colorful, the other is black and white.

Leon,

As far as I know if font doesn't have proper support for emoji it results in wrong rendering (black and white or just blank). We'll try to fix it on JRE side.
