There's nothing special with a hexadecimal value, but its representation is convenient because each digit in a hexadecimal number is exactly 4 bits. Thus, each pair of hexadecimal digits represents 8 bits, or exactly a whole byte. That is, the hexadecimal value 0x1234 represents the byte sequence {0x12, 0x34}, assuming big endian storage, but as a value it is no different from the decimal value 4660.
