This was the Android 11 release schedule.
The planning that Google has for these versions usually begins with the first launch approximately between February and March in what is known as Developer Preview, versions that still need a lot to polish and are designed for developers. Later, in May, we usually see the Beta version of Android, a version that is almost finished and which has little work to do.
