It is unclear whose life was saved by the phone, as are the circumstances surrounding the incident.
The Telegraph reports that the phone pictured is a Nokia 301, which was released in 2013.
This is not the first time that a phone has reportedly stopped a bullet. Otherincidents include a Lumia 520 that prevented a bullet from hitting a Brazilian police officer in 2014 and an HTC Evo 3D that helped save a gas station clerk in Florida in 2013.
