    When asked about the Pixel 7 series pricing in India, a Google spokeswoman says (via): “We establish local pricing depending on several variables, including local taxes and customs fees.” We feel the pricing accurately reflects the value of our premium phones, high-end hardware specifications, and best-in-class AI-powered software experience.”

    Faisal Kawoosa, the chief analyst at TechArc, stated that whether the phones are built in India or not, the corporation should make them for India. An essential component of raising it is its affordability. In doing so, Google would join Samsung and OnePlus as significant contenders in the Android premium category.

    This isn’t the first time we’ve seen excessive pricing for Pixel smartphones in India—Google has a history of screwing up phone pricing nationwide.
