A standard Bluray drive will read what it has been designed to read. Two layer discs with a specific mark length, track pitch and so forth.

If 4K Bluray comes on discs with different physical specs, your standard drive won't read it. Simple as that.

It's possible that a BDXL drive could read the disc if the geometrical specs match those of BDXL (which seems likely).
