Motorola has a new 4G smartphone up its sleeve but has turned the device's name into a guessing game.

Hinting about the device on its Facebook page, the company is asking people to identify the phone. Promising a new clue each day all week, Motorola has so far revealed that the new smartphone will support 4G LTE.

The answer is due this Friday, giving people just a couple more days to decide. But more clues many not be needed.

So far, a large number of commenters have chimed in with the Droid Razr HD as the answer. And at this point, that seems a logical guess. Reports about an upcoming Razr HD surfaced in early June. Those reports called for its debut in another two months, syncing perfectly with this week.

Rumored specs for the new phone include Android 4.0.4, a 1.5GHz processor, a 13-megapixel camera, and HD video. Like its non-HD predecessor, the new HD Droid Razr would be carried by Verizon Wireless.

Any guesses out there as to what phone Motorola will unveil? We'll find out for sure on Friday.

Update, 11:40 a.m. PT:Motorola told CNET that it won't unveil a new device but that this is a Facebook game meant to engage Motorola fans by having them guess which current smartphone this is.
