Logs of Honor 7

Description of problem:

I'm trying to get my Honor 7 phone working on my Fedora computer.
When I plug the phone in I have to chose between ptp, mtp or usb device.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

gphoto2         2.5.6          gcc, popt(m), exif, no cdk, no aa, jpeg, readline
libgphoto2      2.5.7          all camlibs, gcc, ltdl, EXIF
libgphoto2_port 0.12.0         gcc, ltdl, no USB, serial lockdev locking
libmtp version: 1.1.9

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Plugin Honor 7 smartphone

Actual results:

In PTP mode, the "hisuite" volume (containing windows software) is mounted but the smartphone is not recognised by shotwell or banshee.

In MTP mode, the "hisuite" volume (containing windows software) is mounted as well as sometime a PLK L01 volumes in which I can access the phones storages (built-in and SD card) but neither shotwell nor banshee recognise it as a media device.

In USB device mode the SD card is mounted and Shotwell opens but doesn't show any import option not camera on the sidebar. 

"Weird" thing, the device ID changes when I change usb mode

ptp : 12d1:1078 
mtp : 12d1:107a
usb device : 12d1:1074

Expected results:

Should work in PTP mode if I'm not mistaken.
Or at last, in usb device mode, shotwell gets opened, as the system recognise the phone to be a camera, but shotwell should also recognise it as a camera.
