Premium Sleek Design
Created to entice the visual senses, the C9000 is beautifully crafted with a stainless-steel bezel and boasts an ultra-slim profile of 7.98 millimeters.

Stunning 3D Display
For sharper and life-like images, the C9000 features an 800 Clear Motion Rate through its 3D Hyper Real Engine.
