Even though the latest Android 4.2 Jelly Bean software released in November 2012, it is yet to see the light of day on other devices, barring the Nexus line-up. Now, by the looks of things, it seems that Android 4.2 could soon be making its way to yet another device, which will come as a surprise to many.

The product in question, which is slated to get the Android 4.2 OS before tablet and smartphones, is Haier's HXT Series Smart TV, which has adopted the Google platform.

Haier announced a slew of new HDTVs that pack in smart features like Roku Streaming at the CES 2013. The company's HXT 3D Smart TVs will pack in a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Prime processor and run on the latest Android 4.2 Jelly Bean platform.

The HXT Series of Smart TVs from Haier will deliver "max Android entertainment," and these svelte LED 3D Smart TVs will feature "an elegant borderless design." The high-end Android 4.2 TVs will also have a Wi-Fi direct remote.

"Using the latest Qualcomm MPQ8064 chipset inheriting the architecture from the very fastest of mobile chipsets available today and featuring game-console quality Adreno 320 GPU and running Android 4.2, the HXT products will enable the user to access an infinite number of apps including the many new games now offered on Android devices, thus opening up a living room console class gaming experience without the mess of separate cables and equipment," notes the press release.

Currently, the screen sizes for the HXT Series Smart TVs, as well as the release date and pricing are not known. The model shown in the accompanying photo is a prototype.

So, whether Haier eventually manages to release the HXT Smart TVs before other devices get the Android 4.2 update is another story.
