Simple utility class to create QR Code as Bitmap on Android using ZXing library
import android.graphics.Bitmap;
import android.graphics.Color;
import com.google.zxing.BarcodeFormat;
import com.google.zxing.MultiFormatWriter;
import com.google.zxing.WriterException;
import com.google.zxing.common.BitMatrix;
public class QRCodeUtil {
private QRCodeUtil() {}
public static Bitmap encodeAsBitmap(String source, int width, int height) {
BitMatrix result;
try {
result = new MultiFormatWriter().encode(source, BarcodeFormat.QR_CODE, width, height, null);
} catch (IllegalArgumentException | WriterException e) {
// Unsupported format
return null;
}
final int w = result.getWidth();
final int h = result.getHeight();
final int[] pixels = new int[w * h];
for (int y = 0; y < h; y++) {
final int offset = y * w;
for (int x = 0; x < w; x++) {
pixels[offset + x] = result.get(x, y) ? Color.BLACK : Color.WHITE;
}
}
final Bitmap bitmap = Bitmap.createBitmap(w, h, Bitmap.Config.ARGB_8888);
bitmap.setPixels(pixels, 0, width, 0, 0, w, h);
return bitmap;
}
}

Do this to minimize the margins:

// Use a hintmap to minimize margins
HashMap hintMap = new HashMap();
hintMap.put(EncodeHintType.ERROR_CORRECTION, ErrorCorrectionLevel.Q);
hintMap.put(EncodeHintType.MARGIN, 0);

result = new MultiFormatWriter().encode(source, BarcodeFormat.QR_CODE, width, height, hintMap);

Note that there will still be a white margin, since if you have a black background the QR code would be unreadable.
