HTC One X enormo-phone landing on O2 on 5 April

O2 has confirmed it'll be getting HTC's big beast in a matter of weeks. Are you excited?

One of the biggest and beefiest phones to come out of this year's MWC -- HTC's humungous One X -- will be coming to O2's network, the operator has confirmed.

It made the announcement in a tweet spotted by the chaps over at Reg Hardware.

O2 said it will be getting its hands on the HTC One X on 5 April -- which is in line with HTC's "early April" launch timeframe for the One X and the other two One-series devices, the One S and the One V. O2 hasn't yet slapped a price tag on the One X.

The HTC One X is a beast of a phone, with a 4.7-inch display and a quad-core-plus-one multi-core chip which roundly spanks the dual-core competition. It's also fully loaded with the latest and greatest version of Google's Android OS -- the sugary treat that's a real mouthful to say (aka Ice Cream Sandwich).

And if that's not enough, HTC has skinned this behemoth with a new version of its Sense UI -- Sense 4.0 -- which includes a fancy deck-of-cards style Recent Apps menu so you can cathartically flick past tasks off into the cyber abyss.

Also on board the One X is Beat Audio tech, as HTC continues its partnership with Dr Dre & co And sticking proudly out of the One X's backside is an 8-megapixel snapper. HTC reckons it's overhauled its camera tech, with a new image chip, lens and sensor -- so we'll be sure to get snapping when we get the One series devices in for review.
