LG G3 retail box, Health app, and OIS+ LaserAF camera info leaks out, plus more press shots

There are only a few bastions of mystery left regarding today's G3 announcement, but still more leaked images are coming to shed extra light on the upcoming LG flagship, this time diving deeper in its hardware and software features, as well the retail boxing material.
First off, we were tipped a bunch of higher resolution images from the infamous premature listing of the G3 on the LG Netherlands website, which clearly show the existence of a new LG Health app, which includes a pedometer of sorts, as well as a calorie counter. Health apps and biometric measurements are all the rage these days, and LG has obviously decided to keep up with the times. The leaked press material also indicates that the camera technology will be called OIS+ LaserAF, on account of the laser assist light, and the 13 MP camera will feature a dual LED flash.
On the software front, we already heard about the simplified, flatter interface, and now we are seeing more info about an improved file and app management, as well as about the Smart Notice system, which will apparently compete with Google Now, reminding you that you have arrived in the office and you might be wanting to turn on your Wi-Fi, for instance.
Another image set, coming straight from Korea, is showing the alleged LG G3 boxing material, in its full retail glory, accompanied by a few never-before-seen press shots of the LG G3, rotating the handset from all angles. Take a dive in the slideshow below, and tell us what you think of the eventual new LG Health app.
Thanks for the tip!

Yes there is, up to 1TB SD. I'm worried about the english in those ads though. Worse than mine

2GB RAM and S801 having to run a QHD display is a whole lot of compromise.

Plenty of compromise. First it's huge. The software might not be there yet. The back buttons are just plain in the wrong positions. Did I mention it was HUGE? The closest to no compromise has always been Samsung and Apple and that is why they sell. However Samsung really dropped the ball with the GS5 in sizing too. And no using plastic is not a compromise since it is solidly built. It's just too big like all the other 2014 flagships.

Seems like they're really listening to us software-wise. I hope this phone brings something special after a few disappointing rumors (2GB RAM, SD801, 13MP IMX214, etc.).

I agree the specs are extremely lack luster considering how late it has arrived in comparison to the competition. The biggest disappointment is the lack of water/dust proof.

Although LG G3 seems to be a great phone but I dont think it will be a success.... LG really made a better phone than GS5 but with that the screen size and release time, it will be competing more with Note 4 than GS5.....And Note 4 will definitely be a beast.

Performance hiccups might be visible with that S801 chip powering a QHD Display and not to mention the battery.

I'm pretty sure the phone was tested extensively to make sure there are no performance hiccups. There is no evidence that the 801 chip will have any issues with the QHD screen.

The SD805 GS5 prime with a QHD can't even beat the GS5 in any benchmarking. This is going to have like SD600 level of benchmarking. Whether or not this will affect performance remains to be seen but the games will definitely run at frame rates less than the other 2014 flagships.

The best phone so far in terms of looks, design (from the pics) and also display (a department where I trust LG). Also the 13MP camera should be great since LG G2's camera is still awesome. And c'mon guys, do we really know the how it performs with those specs. May be they have optimized their software that much to easilly cop up with that display cimultaneously giving great battery life..or may be they haven't. Lets just wait.
