New devices announced at Mobile World Congress 2018

At the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Jolla has unveiled all the news it held for 2018 and beyond.
In the official teaser video, the point is made of a journey started around 2012, which culminates with the presentation of Sailfish OS 3, announced for the end of 2018 (Q3), presumably in September.

 

New devices

Xperia XA2

Jolla has announced several devices that will be supported by Sailfish: first of all the Xperia XA2, as a successor to the Xperia X F5121 for next year.
We would like to point out that the present remains the good Xperia X, which with Sailfish 2.1.4.14 has obtained several small bug fixes.
The XA2 will presumably debut from September, along with Sailfish release 3.0.

Below the original post:

 

Gemini tablet

At MWC it was also exposed to Gemini tablet with a physical keyboard, with Sailfish Os on board. Finally a new tablet, hopefully good!
Here is the tweet from Jolla:

 

Feature phones

Support for so-called feature phones has been a surprise that targets emerging markets and the target of the elderly: with this Tweet and subsequent statements a Sailfish version is announced for these devices.

On the official website, in the page dedicated to sailfish 3, some features are listed

Availability

As said at the foot of the official page:

Sailfish OS development never stops, not even for legacy devices. Sailfish 3 will be rolled out in phases during Q3/2018 for all licensees and customers.
