In 2022 it was first reported that Google would move up to 20% of Pixel production to India. Later, in 2023, Google confirmed plans to start Pixel production in India with plans to start in 2024, with a report from earlier this year reiterating that.

According to The Economic Times, Google has selected Tamil Nadu, the latest state in India, as the location where it will produce devices.

With the help of Foxconn, Google will set up new production lines in Tamil Nadu for Pixel phones. Wing, a part of Google’s parent Alphabet, will also be producing drones from the region. There’s no word on when production will start, but Google previously said devices made in India would ship before the end of 2024.

The wageslaves in China aren't cheap enough anymore. Have to move to a country willing and able to provide cheap human resources. Roads to riches have to be paved on the backs of the poors.

To be honest I think this is good at this point of time even though we understand why it is happening... some wages are better than none. The unemployed of India can at least latch on to this.

If it was your child having to work, would you also be so nonchalantly saying "some wages are better than none"?
