Anglophone — what is it?

anglophone_definitionAnglophone.  Is this some kind of new “smart phone.”     I wasn’t sure of this word with I saw it in print recently.  From the context it was use in, I could tell it was not something you would speak into.

My research shows that an anglophone is–an English-speaking person, especially a native English speaker.

I also learned about the anglosphere.  This is  a word for the neologism that refers to a  group of of English-speaking nations with a similar cultural heritage–based upon populations originating from the nations of the British Isles, England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland.
