If I play a Blu-Ray on an "old" Blu-Ray player, will the TV upscale it to 4K? Or, does one need an upscaling Blu-Ray Player/4K UHD player to upscale the "old" Blu-Ray Disks?

For relative reference, Costo has a 4K Samsung 55" LED for $730 and a 65" for $880. Even in vivid store lighting they look pretty good! I don't think the specs include "HDR".
