I think what you saw was a proof of concept phone. I guess to hopefully attract an OEM to install Sailfish on one of their devices.

There is a rumor that indian isp Jio's feature phone's will be using sailfish os . The main reason seems to be sailfish ability to use whatsapp in a feature phone [ india concerned] and a light weight os. I hope jolla approaches and uses the opportunity. If it happens no of sailfiah feature phones will overtake the smart ones.

Unless an MFG decides to pay jolla to adapt SFOS on one, there won't be any available.

SFOS version 3 can be used on features phones. Jolla is planning to roll out SFOS 3 in Q3, so it's probably not that far away to see a feature phone for sale with SFOS. However, not likely before the end of this year.
