Basic speed-dial facilities, (push a number key and hold it in on most
phones), or put the green button to dial the last number called/dialled
type of thing - almsot all phones have a facility like this.
It probably autodialled by an accidental button/screen touch before the
screen/keyboard lock kicked in.
Surprised this is the first time you've had it happen - I've had it happen
a few times - answer the call, then hear weird sounds in the background,
depending on where the phone is (pocket, bag, etc.) and what the person
is doing - walking, driving, etc.
