I'm using the latest version of iON OS on my phone. (4gb variant) along with the latest Google beta app. I was able to enable the new Google Assistant by following these steps here
<Mod edit>

It's working perfectly ?
It doesn't matter if your phone values are not pixel 3 by default as said in the post.

You should have the latest google app (BETA) installed. (I'm not sure if it works with alpha build. If you're on alpha build, join the beta program)

Install Magisk Hide Props Config and busybox(required for hide props config). Reboot after installing.

Download any terminal(I use termux), and open it.

Type su, press enter.

Now, we'll emulate the device model as Pixel 4. Type props, press enter.

Now select Add/edit custom props, and one by one add the following props(verify on each prop the current value should be Pixel 3. No need to restart after adding each prop, you can do it after adding all 4).

Add a new prop ro.product.model, press enter. Enter new value as Pixel 4.

Add a new prop ro.product.odm.model, press enter. Enter new value as Pixel 4.

Add a new prop ro.product.product.model, press enter. Enter new value as Pixel 4.

Add a new prop ro.product.vendor.model, press enter. Enter new value as Pixel 4.

Reboot.

Install this apk as well, it's required for downloading the required data.

Make sure wifi is connected. (set to unmetered if possible)
Wait for a few minutes after rebooting and try opening the Google assistant using gestures. It will download additional data and will soon be up after that. (Make sure to give it time.)

The thin four light strip might not show up at the bottom (mine doesn't) but say some command and it will be executed. make sure to use the swipe diagonal gesture. Also I have been unable to enable voice match to activate assistant even though the languages are set to english(us).

You can also enable continued conversation option from settings.
