If I installed an app that may have potential malware from the Google appstore, will the malware dissappear once I delete the app?

Just to be clear, its extremely unlikely that i’ve downloaded a compromised app, since I only download apps that have over 500K downloads from the Playstore, but I’m deleting all apps except for the ones pre-downloaded on my Samsung S10 Plus just to be safe and I’m wondering if potential malware(unlikely) that I haven’t noticed could possibly remain after those apps are deleted. Also I’m curious if all malware will cause problems the moment you receive it, or if the malware could lie dormant for weeks/months before you information is stolen or tampered with.
