Title
(EN) Electronic device comprising multiple displays and method for operating same
Abstract
(EN)

An electronic device according to various embodiments of the present invention comprises: a first main body including a first surface and a second surface which faces the opposite direction to the first surface; a second main body including a third surface which faces the first surface of the first main body part when being folded in a first direction, and a fourth surface which faces the second surface of the first main body part when being folded in a second direction; a rotatable connection unit which connects at least a part of one side of the first main body part and at least a part of one side of the second main body part; a first display which is exposed to the first surface of the first main body part; a second display which is exposed to the third surface of the second main body part; a processor which is electrically connected to the first display and the second display; and a memory which is electrically connected to the processor. The memory, when being executed, may store instructions for instructing the processor to display the first screen and the second screen on the first display and the second display, respectively, when an angle between the first main body and the second main body is included in a first range, and to display at least one from among the third screen and the fourth screen on at least one from among the first display and the second display when an angle between the first main body and the second main body is out of the first range and is included in a second range due to the first main body and the second main body being folded in the second direction.
