I suggest slowly building your gear.
Get Yourself A Camera
While your phone can work if you are just getting started, you are going to need a camera if you are going to be serious about photography. Your phone has restrictions like storage space. I always have issues with storage space on my phone. I record vlogs as well as photography and it's rough. I would highly recommend making a wish list of things you are interested in buying.
You will need some photo editor apps. You can use canva, photoshop, lightroom, pixlr and many more. Editing your photos will make them look so much better.
You Are Going To Need A Camera bag
It's not really a requirement, but I suggest a camera bag to store your camera for travel. You wouldn't want it to get broken.
Get An SD Card
There is nothing more important than having storage space. If you get an SD card, it will be easier to transfer your photos onto your computer. Just take the SD card out of your camera and insert it into your computer and bam! All you have to do is just edit your photos.
I just listed a few things. If I listed everything, it will be too expensive.
Photography is an expensive hobby. Why spend more than you can afford? You should start small and work your way up.
