Google to move the production of most of its American-bound hardware out of China

According to a Nikkei report, the American giant plans to move the production of most hardware out of China, including the Pixel smartphones and the Google Home smart speaker.

The move comes as labor costs are rising in China and because of the pressure exerted by the trade war between the United States and China.

Alphabet, the parent company of Google, will move its smartphone production from China to Vietnam from the beginning of next year according to a recent Nikkei report, although production of the Pixel 3A smartphone will begin in Vietnam before the end of the year.

The American company has planned to ship between 8 and 10 million devices this year, twice as much as last year, thus making Vietnam a privileged partner for Google’s growth strategy.

As for the smart speakers, part of the production will be transferred to Thailand, although the development of the product and the initial stages of production will take place momentarily in China.
