I very much doubt Brazil will be cheaper then China. The taxes and labor laws there are tighter then China. I believe this has other motivations....my two cents as I was born in Brazil

After the suicides, the Chinese government tightened the laws to prevent exploiting poor workers. Foxconn's margins are like 1% or so. They have no choice but to look for new place for keeping the costs low.
