HD guru has a good list of the capabilities of current sets but there's no guarantee even those are future proof.

It's not a false claim, they upgrade the hardware before you purchase.
Not All 4K TVs Are Created Equal
While this advancement in TV technology is very exciting, some manufacturers may release TVs with less developed technology at discounted prices. That's why it's important to understand the technologies within your 4K Ultra HD TV, whether they'll allow you to stay future proof as 4K standards change, and whether they'll allow you to watch all available content in 4K now and in the future.
All 4K Ultra HD TVs at Best Buy will be equipped with HEVC/H.265 (High Efficiency Video Coding). This allows the demanding size of 4K content to be compressed and streamed over the Internet. This is critically important, because for now, 4K content can only be streamed or downloaded. In addition, all Netflix 4K content requires HEVC to be built into the TV.
Upscaling the picture quality of all your current movies and TV shows to near-4K Ultra HD quality is a fantastic feature, and Best Buy is committed to carrying 4K Ultra HD TVs that offer the finest upscaling. Keep in mind that some 4K TVs sold elsewhere won't be able to upscale at all.
All 4K Ultra HD TVs at Best Buy will have HDCP 2.2 installed, which will help future-proof your TV and ensure you can view all 4K content now and in the future.
Newer high-speed HDMI cable allows for 4K content to be displayed all the way up to 60fps, which is the highest frame-per-second rate available. All UHD TVs currently at Best Buy have this 60fps capability.
Overall, you can purchase your 4K Ultra HD TV with confidence at Best Buy. All of our current 4K TVs have passed our strict requirements for a high-quality 4K picture, premier upscaling of content, future proofing through software updates, and the ability to display all available 4K content today and in the future.
