HD stands for High Definition. And High Definition is relative. Period. End of story.
That being said, there has become a “standard” for what High Definition means in our modern world, but to explain that we have to talk about pixels. Pixels are tiny squares that make up your computer, phone, or TV screen. They are told what color to be by your computer and then lit from behind so you can see them. In essence, they all come together on a miniscule level to make the images you see on your screen. So the more pixels you have, the “better” your screen will look. Or to put it another way, the more pixels you have, the less you will see said pixels which will create the illusion that the images you see on your screen are more “real” and less “digital”. Even though it’s all digital.
