Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin on Friday said that Google Pixel smartphones will soon be manufactured locally in the state at a facility near Chennai.


Manufacturing units of Samsung and Apple smartphones are already present in the State and now the Sundar Pichai-led Alphabet Inc. has jumped into the fray to capitalise on the rising demand for premium smartphones among consumers in the country, which is estimated as the world’s second-largest smartphone market.


State Industry Minister TRB Raja had visited the US headquarters of Google along with Foxconn company officials and held discussions about starting a business in Tamil Nadu, Stalin said.
