1. An electronic device comprising:
a first housing including a first side facing a first direction, a second side facing a second direction opposite to the first direction, and a first lateral side surrounding at least part of a space between the first side and the second side;
a second housing including a third side facing a third direction, a fourth side facing a fourth direction opposite to the third direction, and a second lateral side surrounding at least part of a space between the third side and the fourth side;
a flexible display including a first display portion and a second display portion, the first display portion located in the first housing and exposed through the first housing, the second display portion located in the second housing and exposed through the second housing;
a first conductive member disposed to at least part of the first lateral side;
a second conductive member disposed to at least part of the second lateral side;
a connecting member which connects the first housing and the second housing such that the first housing and the second housing are folded to face each other, wherein when the first housing and the second housing are folded, the first lateral side including at least part of the first conductive member disposed thereon and the second lateral side including at least part of the second conductive member disposed thereon abut against each other;
at least one wireless communication circuit electrically connected with one of a plurality of conductive segments of the first conductive member; and
at least one switching circuit, the at least one switching circuit configured to electrically connect at least one of a plurality of conductive segments of the second conductive member with a ground member,
wherein the at least one switching circuit electrically connects one of the plurality of conductive segments of the second conductive member with the ground member when the first housing and the second housing are folded.
