The first pane will show on any gadget, while the second will show on the right half of a foldable display. Dialogs will likewise allow you to pick on which side of a foldable display they should show.
The crease or hinge on a foldable is presented to developers as a display feature, so applications can in any case stretch to the whole foldable display on the off chance that they need, or consider where the hinge is found and show appropriately.
