Google moving Pixel smartphone production to Vietnam from China - report

Thursday 29 August 2019 | 09:31 CET | News
The factory in Vietnam will be part of a low-cost supply chain in Southeast Asia to help fuel those hardware ambitions. Google is working with a partner in Bac Ninh, where Samsung has also developed a smartphone supply chain over the past ten years. Under current plans, Google will shift some production of the Pixel 3A phone from China to Vietnam before the end of this year, the sources said. For its smart speakers, some production will likely move to Thailand, but the company's new product development and initial production for its hardware lineup will still be in China.
