    Actually the exact quote was that Miracast needs new hardware but the 1520 MIGHT be new enough but he isn't sure. I would imagine the Nokia people have a better clue if their phones will be supported and since the Lumia Icon, and the Lumia 930 are new hardware I imagine they are.

    Actually (cough cough), I was the person who brought Nokia's statement to Engadget's attention, which the author was cool enough to update (figured it was my good deed for the day) ;)

    As MrVol84 points out, Nokia has actually had an official statement on this for about 4 days now, you can read the whole thing but the relevant quote is this:

    The Nokia Lumia 1520, Lumia Icon and the new Lumia 930 will also be able to project content wirelessly to Miracast-enabled screens, TVs, and projectors.

    All of this will come to your Lumia smartphone running on Windows Phone 8 in an update package called Lumia Cyan-starting this summer.


    Joe Belfiore rocks and I'm sure that his statement (which is accurate) was a quick tweet response based on his general knowledge of the SOC's that have been used in WP8 phones, most of which don't support Miracast. But in the case of the 1520, Icon, and 930, I'd go with Nokia's official statement of support.

    For those phones we should be seeing this with the Cyan update.

    I won't be surprised if we will miss Miracast on out 1520. Microsoft and Nokia have to push us to another devices :) Even though 1520 is quite new device. This is how MS works. Some new features always MUST be missed in prev. top devices or new "top" devices won't be bought :)

    Well, if everyone would feel better with a Joe Belfiore confirmation as well, here it is:

    Nokia posted: Miracast WILL be available on Icon & 1520... But it WILL NOT be part of the dev preview. Will come months later.

    Glad to hear confirmation that 1520 will get Miracast, coming from iOS one feature greatly missed is hooking up the phone to the big screen.

    I love this thread! This exactly why I'd bought my Nokia Lumia 1520.3 (RM-938) 700, 850, 1900, AWS1700/2100 LTE bands, 32GB unlocked version (from Newegg) a week and a half ago, just because I was certain that the radios & Snapdragon 800 SoC would work for Miracast. Winning!

    Would a dongle like this one work with my 1520 32GB?
    Would be awesome to have at home and on holidays to play movies and so on.
