Welcome to Android Central! Which phone? It's not unusual to have more than one system app called Phone -- I don't know the details, but I suspect they're different apps that address different aspects of the phone function. For example, my Pixel 3 XL lists Phone, Phone and Messaging Storage, and Phone Services as 3 separate system apps. Your phone might just be listing all of these as "Phone" 3 times.
