Google is partnering with Foxconn to make Pixel phones in India, sources said

Alphabet’s Google ( GOOGL.O ) plans to make its Pixel smartphones in the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu and has partnered with Taiwan’s Foxconn ( 2317.TW ), two sources with direct knowledge said on Thursday.

“It will make its latest smartphone model in the state… at the existing Foxconn facility (in Tamil Nadu),” said one of the sources on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to speak to the media.

Foxconn already assembles Apple ( AAPL.O ) iPhones at a facility near Chennai in Tamil Nadu.

Big global manufacturers are looking to diversify their supply chains outside of China amid geopolitical tensions between Beijing and Washington and are considering India as an option.

“The investment in Tamil Nadu is separate from the reported tie-up between Dixon ( DIXO.NS ) and Google (to make smartphones in India),” the source said, adding that the decision was made after state officials met with Google executives recently. .

News website Moneycontrol first reported Google’s plans.

Google, Foxconn and the Tamil Nadu government did not immediately respond to Reuters requests for comment.
