1. An electronic device, comprising:
a housing including a first housing and a second housing rotatably connected to the first housing;
a first sensor disposed in the first housing;
a second sensor disposed in the second housing;
a display disposed across the first housing and the second housing;
a first processor; and
a second processor,
wherein the first processor is configured to:
obtain, via the first sensor, first information about movement of the electronic device,
obtain, via the second sensor, second information about the movement of the electronic device,
determine a type of the movement of the electronic device based on at least one of the first information or the second information,
determine an arrangement state of the electronic device associated with an angle formed by the first housing and the second housing of the electronic device, based on a comparison of the first information and the second information, and
provide a command to control the second processor based on the determined type of the movement of the electronic device and the determined arrangement state of the electronic device, and
wherein the second processor is configured to perform a specified operation based on the command,
wherein the first sensor comprises a first inertial sensor configured to detect movement corresponding to a plurality of axes,
wherein the second sensor comprises a second inertial sensor configured to detect movement corresponding to at least the plurality of axes,
wherein the first information comprises first sensing data corresponding to the plurality of axes detected by the first inertial sensor,
wherein the second information comprises second sensing data corresponding to the plurality of axes detected by the second inertial sensor, and
wherein, when first sensing data and first second sensing data about a first axis of the plurality of axes have a similarity of a first threshold value or greater and second first sensing data and second sensing data about a second axis have a symmetry of a second threshold value or greater, the first processor determines that the arrangement state of the electronic device is a folded state in which the first housing and the second housing form a first angle less than a predetermined angle.
