Will the UK products be updated to include 4K models and built-in DVR capabilities or would be stuck with the current offerings of the Connect Duo and Quatro units

The "4K" just means it supports ATSC 3.0, which is the USA's and South Korea's version of "NextGen TV". As of right now no other ATSC countries have any plans to deploy it.

In the UK, your "NextGen TV" is DVB-T2 which is already supported by the Duo and Quatro. Also, the few European cable providers like Ziggo, BT and Virgin who are doing linear 4K are using IP delivery instead of DVB, which isn't compatible with 3rd party tuners like the HDHomeRun.
