After Apple and Samsung, Google also announced its plan to start manufacturing Pixel smartphones in India with the latest model to be rolled out next year. Reacting to this news, industrialist Anand Mahindra shared an interesting story about his made-in-India iPhone. Taking to X (formerly Twitter), the business tycoon expressed pride and excitement in owning a smartphone manufactured in our country. He also talked about the reaction of a salesman in the United States when he informed that his iPhone 15 was made in India.
It all started with a post on X by a page called Indian Tech and Infra. “Google to start manufacturing Pixel smartphones in India, beginning with the latest model which will be rolled out in 2024,” the caption of the post read. Mr Mahindra re-shared this post along with his story.
“I recently was in a Verizon store in the U.S to get a local sim and proudly informed the salesperson that my iPhone 15 was made in India. It was a particular pleasure to see his raised eyebrows!” he wrote, adding, “I also have a Google Pixel. I will switch to the India-made version when it’s out. So I’ll be able to tell them my Pixel is made in India too… But there probably won’t be any raised eyebrows at that time because by then, India will have been globally acknowledged as a manufacturing powerhouse”.
