Yes, there are several third-party Android antimalware solutions that do not have real-time protection and do not show a permanent notification on the notification bar. Some examples are Malwarebytes for Android, Norton Mobile Security, and Avast Mobile Security. These apps allow for on-demand scanning and removal of malware, without running in the background at all times.

Perhaps someone needs to confirm this.

I use this set of antiviruses. All of them can be used as scanners without real-time protection except Bitdefender. I would recommend Eset, Malwarebytes, Avast. By the way, VirusTotal Mobile as a scanner can replace antiviruses in general, although it is not very user-friendly.

Bitdefender also have a free version without real-time protection.
Maybe I just wrote about the ones I have on my screen. The paid Bitdefender I can't get completely disabled, even with all the restrictions on background work, notifications, and other things. It just magically keeps displaying whether or not the new installed application is safe after all. :D

You can disable notification of your app from your phone.

You can disable real-time protection in your AV. Just use on-demand scanning
