This can be confusing as there are a few 4K resolutions. It is just a generic term thought roughly translates into the display having 4000 horizontal lines. The most common one and the first one That I saw a review for was the more known 3840x2160. I would not know what to call it but 4K would not be my first choice, but it is better than Double WQHD or something. But I think it is also known as UHD.
Also it is a Fixed 16:9 ratio like 1280x720, 1366x768, 1600x900, 1920x1080(full HD) 2560x1440(WQHD)
3840x2160, And that is no coincidence that the number of horizontal lines is double that of 1920x1080
