Images with malware in them

Hi Everyone,

I just have 2 questions regarding images that could potentially contain a virus.(Steganography)

I dont have any knowledge about this new form of virus.

Question 1: I have concerns that I could've opened an image with a virus in it on my phone. If my phone was infected with it, would it be gone once I factory reset my phone?

Question 2: How likely is it for anti-virus programs on an Andriod to catch such virusses?
