Sorry if this has been covered, but I want to give my observations, maybe they can help eliminate possibilities and possibly give definitive answers
to the question.
We have an ability for our brains to become familiar with certain visual items, such as facial recognition, and other common sights. This allows us to
process information much faster and accurately in most cases.
Because of this, we tend to trick our brains into seeing something we are subconsiously relating the images to. This allows us to further understand
risks or rewards associated with our perceptio, also allowing us to make very quick decision and steer us from harms way -fight or flight.
I believe what we are seeing here is a combination of several different things that, when combined, makes our brains believe we are indeed seeing a
cell phone in the image.
However, if you look closely and try to do it without preconceived notions as to what we are looking at, we can see the the ring finger on the right
hand is bent at a greater degree than the pinky on the same hand. This tells us that we are seeing the reflation off the ring finger and a shadow from
the palm of the hand.
The light reflecting from the ring finger tricks us into believing it is a reflection off a cellphone and the shadow is the back of the phone pressed
to the cheek.
So, the illusion is the ring finger reflecting light in a way that our minds associate it with a common sight, a cell phone.
30 years ago we would have never made this connection, as there wer absolutely no mobile cell phones.
However, if I am incorrect, then the thing sticking up on the rear of her head is nothing more than an antenna used for the cell phone's
food for thought anyway and I guess I could be correct in making these assumptions
