People who suffer from a fear of holes have claimed Nokia’s new smartphone is triggering their condition. The Nokia 9 PureView has just been announced at the tech show MWC 2019. It features a penta-camera with five lenses as well as a light and infrared sensor for detecting depth.
But these seven small holes are arranged in a way which is making people living with trypophobia feel very untoward indeed.
Explaining the averse reaction Dr Geoff Cole, a senior lecturer at the University of Essex’s Centre for Brain Research, said:
When a person takes a picture of you, the camera on this phone could fall roughly at a distance and alignment which could trigger a trypophobic response.
The camera really does have the structure to cause trypophobia.they see something bad and it keeps playing on their mind. That’s a common one.
