Sources familiar with the matter have informed the BBC that tech giant Google will imminently commence the production of its Pixel smartphones in India. Google plans to manufacture the phones at an existing Foxconn facility located in the southern state of Tamil Nadu. Additionally, the company is poised to independently manufacture drones in the same state.

Amidst geopolitical tensions with the West, India has emerged as a pivotal destination for global firms seeking to diversify their supply lines outside China. Last year, Google announced its intentions to produce Pixel smartphones in India, starting 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.

Sources revealed on Friday that Alphabet’s Google would manufacture advanced versions of Pixel smartphones at the Tamil Nadu facility, with manufacturing slated to commence within this calendar year. The source stated that Google and Foxconn have inked a contract for this purpose. In Tamil Nadu, Foxconn presently operates two facilities, with one near Chennai city assembling Apple’s iPhones.

State officials met company executives recently, leading to Google’s decision to manufacture Pixel phones in Tamil Nadu. According to a statement from the Tamil Nadu government, Google officials are also scheduled to meet state Chief Minister MK Stalin in Chennai soon.
