The compatible Pixel devices for Android 11 are Pixel 2 / 2 XL, Pixel 3 / 3 XL, Pixel 3a / 3a XL, and Google Pixel 4 / 4XL.

Since the new version isn’t fully functional for daily usage, the company is asking people to manually download the version. And if you go for Flash, then don’t forget to back up your data as you’ll need to fully reset the device.

Now, once the preview release is successful and as the company expected, they will be all set to release for consumer use in Q3 2020.

After these two filtering phases, the final product will be ready for users all over the world and they will be able to use Android 11 in Q3 2020. Again the compatibility to have Android 11 in your phones will depend on what latest Android version your device can support.
