I am googling it but not really getting an answer. We currently have a Samsung 55" 4k tv that is a little over two years old and I doubt it has real HDR. We are moving to a bigger house on Tuesday and decided now is the time to look at a 65" with HDR.

Two models I am looking at that they have at our local Sam's Club are:

UN65MU800D which says is HDR ($2,000)
UN65MU630D which says is HDR Pro (I think its $1,300)

Is anybody familiar with these models? I have been looking online and having been finding much info at all.

That's great help you gave there.

I've never heard of HDR pro. Sounds like a faux HDR looking at the price.

I only know of HDR , HDR10(and 10+) and Dolby Vision.

? That helped the TC a whole lot... SMDH

On topic: my guess it's just a marketing term... Just research the TV and if it has HDR 10 (10 bit) than you're good to go...

HDR Pro is basically a marketing term for HDR10.

LG, the second largest TV OEM in the world, has launched its entire lineup of 2016 OLED and Super UHD LED TVs with Dolby Vision globally. (Also, don't be confused by the term 'HDR Pro' - LG calls TVs that use HDR10, HDR Pro TVs.)

It is similar to how companies use different terms for refresh rate. For example, Samsung uses Clear Motion Rate, LG has TruMotion, Sony does MotionFlow XR, etc.

From a quick look, the main difference between these two TV's is the refresh rate. The cheaper one is 60hz, and the more expensive one is 120hz.

"Motion Rate 120 for fast action scenes" = 60hz

"Motion Rate 240 for crisp fast action scenes" = 120hz

I appreciate the info greatly. As far as 60/120hz, I am pretty sure our current tv is 60hz and we have no problem with it, it looks great watching movies to us with 4k discs.
