    Yup. They're the same thing; I know because I recently asked this very same question:

    Заранее благодарю всех за исправление ошибок в моём русском.

    "Девчонка" sometimes can sound a bit rude. For example:
    Какая дрянная девчонка! (What a nasty girl!), but:
    Какая хорошая девочка! (What a good girl!).
    And one more case:
    Than you introduce your g/f to your mother, she (the mother) can say:
    "Какая симатичная девочка!" (What a pretty girl!).
    But your friend, more likely, would say "симпатичная девчонка".
    Please, correct my mistakes, except for the cases I misspell something on purpose!

    Это называется уменьшительно-пренебрежительный суффикс "онк/енк"

    I would like to add to the previous points.
    The word 'девчонка' is probably more common in the expression: моя девушка. Моя девочка seems very outdated nowadays. Though you can still hear it.
