Google's portrait mode uses machine learning techniques to attempt to achieve the same effect. The phone camera captures multiple images of a scene at different angles (taking advantage of parallax), as well as some other depth cues (sharpness, face recognition, etc.), to inform the blur effect via neural network.

Whenever I take off my glasses and look at the road light, I also have multiple of these circles in my eye sight. It shows that our eyes work just like some of these lenses.
