Smaller HDR TVs For Gaming?

Anyone know of any 39-43" HDR tvs out or coming soon, with low input lag? Have a projector for movies, and considering getting a gaming only TV with HDR for the new updated consoles.

Acousticsounddesign is only accepting a 15% off coupon making it $279 for the PL-200. Compared to $154 for the polk, which I could get a second one soon if needed then. Hmmm.
