    I doubt it.India is always leagues behind when it comes to latest technology adoption.My guess is that 2-3 years from now may be 3/4th of almost all "major/worth watching channels" will be HD & a few will be HDR(similar to current situation with most SD & few HD channels).

    4k is not HDR.Even if some channels start telecasting in 4k I doubt they will have HDR in India.

    HDR has very long time to come like 4-5 years. Even most of the channels in US are mostly 1080i not 4K.

    If you want to experience 4k on a tv through television network, you should know even those advertised "4k" are basically upscaled 1080p content streamed through with an image sharpening filter.
    Only real way to experience 4k is by downloading stuff or netflix/streaming media

    Went to sony center, took demo of 43 inch W772E and X7002E
    Observed X7002 is better though it doesn't have triluminous display, W772E was having some reflection issue where a spectrum comes when the light hits the screen. That I didn't like that at all because my room has many windows. Though price difference is 3k between these two. Which one should I buy? 4K HDR TV or fully loaded 1080p HDR TV?

    First Tv channels and Live broadcast use HLG not HDR10. World Cup might be shown in HLG but not in India.
    Second it's better to get a Good PQ SDR Tv than some budget HDR Tv. 50K HDR Tv are pretty useless since their peak brightness is extremely low.
    Third You need a minimum 5ms Response time Tv anything above that you will notice input lag. This response time increases further when in HDR mode.
    Fourth Budget 4K Tv's have below average upscaling.

    Suggestion, a get midrange SDR 4K Tv. Also its extremely difficult to calibrate HDR in budget Tv since there are very limited tweak options. However, finding 4K SDR content outside Netflix is cumbersome almost all 4K content will come with some sort of HDR (hdr10). Selecting Tv nowadays has become a chore and boring.

    You said in your original post you are going to use it with PS4 that is why i didn't suggested 4k tvs. 4k are obviously better but you have to sacrifice gaming your PS4 is not powerful to drive 4k tv

    Yes, I have PS4 slim that supports HDR, I know it doesn't support 4K but upcoming PS5 will do without upscaling in 2020. I think playing PS4 in a HDR 4K TV will be fine as games will run in 1080p resolution. Is that wrong?

    I don't have much Idea about PS4 as i have never used one but running games at lower resolution than native resolution supported by tv will not look good.I think you should stick with 1080p as there are not many 4k content in India and 4k gaming requires powerful hardware

    Do you really need a 4k TV now ? What are the sources (of 4k) do you have currently ? Streaming via Netflix , Amazon Prime and Downloaded media are the only option that I can see. PS4 can't play 4k Blu ray, only regular fullhd . The new PS won't come this year. 2019 or 2020 maybe. So buying an expensive TV right now doesn't make sense. Plus most of the cheaper 4k tvs don't have upscalers. so SD channels would look shitty.

    Most cheap tvs don't have upscaler If you are looking to purchase tv on budget then get Philips
