HDR and 4K aren't exactly comparable. 4K refers purely to resolution while HDR refers to techniques related to getting better looking pictures.
As mentioned by Gofre, most HDR TV's will be 4K. Part of the UHD standard is to be 4K or higher and another part is to be HDR. To meet UHD standards a TV will have a 4K display and offer HDR, among other features. I'm not terribly well informed on this so someone correct me if I'm wrong.
As a result you probably won't be able to pick between 4K and HDR. You either get a UHD TV (with 4K and HDR) or you don't (and have neither). I imagine some cheaper models might offer 4K but not HDR (and thus don't meet UHD standards) but if you're spending money on a 4K display you should be getting something decent, not a cheap model.
