Google ties up with Foxconn to make Pixel phones in India

Last year, Google had announced plans, external to make Pixel smartphones in India, beginning with the Pixel 8.

“India is a priority market for Pixel smartphones, and we’re committed to bringing the best of our hardware and underlying built-in software capabilities to people across the country,” it said in a blog post.

On Friday, sources told the BBC that Alphabet’s Google would make advanced versions of Pixel smartphones at the Tamil Nadu facility and that manufacturing would begin within this calendar year.

Google and Foxconn have signed a contract to this end, the source said.

Foxconn currently has two facilities in Tamil Nadu. At one of its facilities near Chennai city, it assembles Apple’s iPhones.

Google’s decision to make Pixel phones in Tamil Nadu came after state officials met company executives recently.

According to a statement from the Tamil Nadu government, officials from Google are also set to meet state Chief Minister MK Stalin in Chennai soon.
