Up to 21% more expensive in India than in the US are Google’s most recent premium smartphones.

On October 6, during its #MadeByPixel 2022 hardware event, Google unveiled this year’s flagship series, the Pixel 7 lineup. Google Pixel 7 series pre-ordering will begin following the launch event, the firm announced, and it will go on sale starting on October 13.

For the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, respectively, Google charges USD 599 and USD 899 in the US. The cost of Google’s newest premium smartphones is up to 21% higher in India when compared to the US market’s pricing for the Pixel 7 series. Why the Pixel 7 series is more expensive in India than the US is explained by a Google representative.
Google has not yet revealed where it produces its smartphones.
The price is the key to improving sales, he added. Additionally, Google would thereby join Samsung and OnePlus as a formidable rival in the Android premium market.
As Google has a history of screwing up the phone’s pricing in the nation, this won’t be the first time we see exorbitant pricing for Pixel devices there.
Why are Google’s Pixel 7 models so pricey in India?
We base local pricing on a number of factors, including local taxes and customs fees, the Google spokesman says in response to a question about the Google Pixel 7 series price in India (via). Our premium phones, top-tier hardware specifications, and industry-leading AI software capabilities, we believe, are all reflected in the pricing.
