I have written down two sentences below.

(1) I saw a fly at the top right corner over there.

(2) I saw a fly at the top right over there.

In the second sentence, I omitted "corner". Is it grammatically correct? Thanks.

Yes, but that is a poor description of where the fly was seen. Corner of what/where?

I agree - that sentence seems to be lacking information - but in the right context it would be OK.

"top right" can be an adjectival phrase - "top right corner".
0r it can act as a noun "the top right".

If you look at your screen, at the top right you will see your avatar.
