There's just a all around misunderstanding about HDR and what it does. Many here narrow it down to one aspect, when there's many variables that contribute to what HDR does.
HDR is about detail, just as much as it is about peak nits. It's not about resolution, but 10-12 bit color and color gamut is, as well as color volume.
It's a indoor scene, with a bright sun shining through the front door or window and the scenery not being washed out or blown out, because the display tech has the brightness capability, and wide color gamut to display very bright colors without it being blown out to white and losing detail and color.
Things off in the distance don't lose color detail because the bright sun hasn't blown out the color of the sky to white, because the display can maintain color saturation.
It's the ability to have objects in any given scene react properly to the amount of light, indoors and outdoors.
Deep blacks, shadow detail, and black detail.
